Whitby - Saturday afternoon

The craft workshop was a runaway success, I was so so pleased with it all. We have new people in the village and they all came along to meet each other. We are meeting every Thursday night and people are keen to continue after Christmas. I didn't take my camera but will do at the next meeting - and will put details up from the worksheets I am producing to run alongside the practical workshops.


This afternoon we nipped over to Whitby, I was quite excited at the prospect of looking in the shops for Christmas ideas - but I was ddisappointed! What did I buy? A book from the charity shop "Raising an adopted Greyhound" no no no ideas - it is for my Mother in law.

 

The sky was nice however on the way home!

  4. That is a fabulous photo of the village! All the colours of the roof lines really make it look like a gorgeous fall day. What are the ruins on the hill? A castle or cathedral?

  7. Doesn't Whitby look lovely in the late afternoon sun! That's a gorgeous photo.
    Leslie if you come back to check Denise's comments -- That's Whitby Abbey. It's famous and has a wonderful history. Do Google it. I think you will like what you find.

  8. "The sky was nice"? Nice? It was gorgeous. Then maybe it turned into "nice" but it was bloody marvelous for a while there, I can assure you, even from here.
    And I love the skyline with the ruin of the Abbey.

  14. I love Whitby, we only made it once this summer, we should make an effort to go more often. I've heard that retired Greyhounds make great pets.
