Robin Hood’s Bay

(image copyright 2009 by Dan Routh)

It’s supposed to be really cold here the next few days and with the sucking sound in the local economy, right now it’s pretty dreary, so today’s image is from my film archive of places where I’d really like to be. Robin Hood’s Bay is on the coast of Yorkshire, east of York and between Scarbourgh and Whitby. It is sort of a storybook fishing village not overrun by tourists and perches on bluffs that run down to the sea. It’s cool and damp because it’s on the North Sea, but cool and damp in Robin Hood’s Bay is different than frigid in Greensboro. Some fresh fish and chips and a pint of bitter and I’m good to go.
