Early start, 8am, in sunshine & strong winds. Beautiful countryside with lots of photo’s & video taken. Bleak moors & howling gales on the top of the moors & got another soaking. Our friend Tom left 3 hours before us because of blisters, but was disappointed when we caught up with him just 1.5 miles from Robin Hood’s Bay.
Completed the walk at 16-30 throwing our pebbles from St Bees into the North Sea & wading into the sea. The tide was calm so we did not get wet socks. Staying at Whitby Youth Hostel over night near the Abbey. We celebrated firstly in the Wainwright Bar at the Bay Hotel in Robin Hood’s Bay, and now at the world famous Magpie restaurant with Fish & Chips.
Thank you again for your encouraging comments.
Leaving Whitby tomorrow morning to take coach to York via Scarborough & train from York to Derby arriving in the evening. No more walking till the wounds are healed!! With painful memories but still enjoyable & worthwhile for a good cause.
