From the museum we had a great view across the harbour or perhaps I should say dock, to where the Endeavour replica is moored. It’s hard to imagine that such a tiny boat sailed so far with 95 crew on board!
...and yes we found the quaint shops. I never cease to be amazed at how English shopkeepers conduct their businesses in such tiny shops. Not an inch of space is wasted.
Interesting times when their are pedestrians, cars and service vehicles all trying to make their way.
Next stop Scarborough...

More on Whitby later. I'm posting from my phone. I find I can't post too much at one time.

We are waking to our first whole day in England. Oh, how we enjoyed driving through the countryside to get to Leeds. We’re staying in a grand hotel “The Queens” right in the city centre. It’s main claim to fame is it’s Art Deco style, which has been maintained rather well. I don’t think her Maj has ever stayed here but Princess Grace did, so we’re nudging close to royalty here folks. We depart for Whitby by the sea about midday. It’s going to be a scorching 20 degrees. Can’t wait to take in a bit of “Heartbeat” country,

Blogging is such a good way to journal activities and keep memories. Hopefully I’ll keep up to speed this time.
