I love where I live on the North Yorkshire Coast. Scarborough has been my home for sixteen years now and it has provided the main inspiration for the setting in my books; the fictional seaside town of Whitsborough Bay. My husband is Scarborough born and bred.
We lived in town initially but now live on the outskirts. Scarborough has two bays – North and South – and we’re closest to South Bay but it would be a very long walk to get there so we’ve not been able to do that during lockdown. Besides, North Bay with the brightly-coloured beach huts is my favourite of the bays and that’s even further to walk.
Our nearest walking-distance beach is called Cayton Bay. There’s a lovely cliff-top walk overlooking the bay about 7-10 minutes’ from our house. I’ve done that walk a few times since lockdown and have shared photos of it.
Yesterday, hubby decided to walk down to the Cayton Bay. I didn’t accompany him as (a) I had too much to do before my return to work tomorrow and (b) I’m so unfit at the moment that I’m not convinced I’d have made it back up the cliff path without a winch! It’s very steep and it was a hot day. I therefore asked him to take some photos for me and I thought I’d share them.
Hope you enjoy hubby’s photos and your virtual trip to the beach. If you’d like to see more of his work, you can look at his images on his website here.
