Cottages around the Bay

Last week we went to Robin Hoods Bay for an overnight stay in the camper van. I loved all the little cottages winding round and round, through ginnels, along passageways and all leading down to the bay. And yet as we wandered round amongst them we realised that about 75% of them are now holiday cottages. It meant that you could peer quite happily into their windows as they were empty. All seemed to be strangely similar inside. There was a sadness amongst them in this place with great character and history.

This ginnel and porch frames the bay. We walked along the beach with the dog.

This was my favourite door, I love the simplicity of the zigzags against the frame of the top part of the door.

And there were lots of blues and greens as there should be in a seaside village!

We were lucky with the weather last Wednesday, cold but very sunny and bright.
