Day Fourteen - Littlebeck to Robin Hood's Bay

Fri. 22nd May 2009

Overnight:- Intake Farm - One of the best (if not the best) accommodation, saved until last, with a wonderful welcome with lashing of hot tea and Bakewell Tart. Intake is a proper working family farm, which also takes in B&B. There were just four of us last night and we all sat around the family dining table and were served up both chicken and beef casserole followed by home made rhubarb crumble and custard.

Big (not little) white bull - didn't like the way it snorted and stamped its feet when I tried to get closer

Nanny and Billy (not necessarily in that order) over looking the garden gate as we leave Littlebeck

 

The Hermitage - hollowed out from solid rock. It is situated in the Littlebeck Nature Reserve

 

Looking out from the inside of the Hermitage

 

Cheer up Matt - just look how much bigger you are than that 20 foot plus high waterfall - Falling Floss

 

Not our first sighting of the sea, that was two days ago but the first that was photographable. This is Whitby 6 miles to the north of our final destination of Robin Hoods Bay

 

Just for a change from sheep - Sheltered ponies at a stud near High Hawkser

 

Through the caravan site that gives us access to the coastal path - our leg leg

 

So close now - our first sighting of the Bay

 

Congratulations and well done - made it. We wash our boots this time in the North Sea

 

The final photo of the day outside of the Wainwight Bar of the Bay Hotel right on the waters edge. We then adjourned inside to take one or two libations as were richly deserved
