Tuesday 21st Sept Saltburn and Whitby

Parking on the hill into Sandsend for our usual morning cuppa, I spotted this guy with a rather unusual approach to surfing, and he was moving along very smoothly in the direction of Whitby

It was a very low tide as you can see here, with just a smattering of folk out for a morning stroll
We arrived at Saltburn and began the walk down the steep access path to the Italian Gardens, here is Pat's shot of our first glimpse of it
And mine as we got down to the level it is on.
Here the gardeners are responding to the ladies asking "Is your garden at home as good as this?"
The gardeners were at least honest in their response!

Pat spotted this rather nice butterfly, they and the swallows are still much in evidence

Hows that for a dessert? mine was two waffles with golden syrup and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on each one!
The Cliff lift is now closed till Easter next year! Not good news for some people I suspect
Pat loved this pier and took this one

And this is my favourite view looking towards the Ship inn
On the way back we stopped off in Whitby as my trainers had started to split, so there was an opportunity to get off a couple of shots. It had been a good day out
