Staithes by the sea

The first thing that struck me about this town was that it was completely empty, we hardly saw another person. With these cute quirky little cobble street fishing villages that is very strange. I only saw Staithes with the tide out, I would have loved to have seen it with the tide it, I can…

Robin Hood Bay

Some places feel characterful but touristy and then you get places like this that are full of character and feel completely lived in.
