Usually my week in Whitby brings reasonably dry, if cold weather. However, this year there was almost wall to wall rain and wind. However, the lack of people in January gives me unfettered and quiet access to all the bays, beaches and piers which is wonderful. My Christmas windproof jacket and trousers kept out all the grot so I was able to wander around the coast to my heart's content.
These photographs were taken on different days of the week although you would never know as the sky was grey all the time. The bays, beaches and piers around Whitby are great to explore and there is always lots to photograph.
I love it there and can't wait to return.
