Last weekend we did a whistle-stop tour of the North Yorkshire Coast. On Saturday we went to Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay, and on Sunday we played in rock pools in the beautiful fishing village of Staithes.

In Whitby I discovered I don't like seagul poo, slot machine arcades or crowds. Maybe I'm just getting old.

Whitby wasn't the peaceful fishing harbour lined with quirky shops I remember from my childhood, although I did find a lovely little vintage shop called Dotty About Vintage which had a particularly lovely mustard yellow melamine teacup I wish I'd bought. Darn it.

And I did love my prawns on the pier.
