‘Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea’

England, North Yorkshire

It’s time for our weekly day out. We’ll stay in the UK this time, but I’m going to whisk you from destination to destination – ones that aren’t at all crowded, and where there are all kinds of shells and stones and rocks and seaweed and birdlife to enjoy, whatever the weather turns out to be.

  1. Filey is so very recognisable to me, and yet it must be 40 years since I was there. Staithes was a bit nearer πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Jude will be pleased with these, as am I. Lovely gulls on the Farnes!

    1. You do. In the end I had no choice, because I accidentally clicked to change rather than preview, and couldn’t get back to my original, whose name I’d forgotten. I ended up not choosing the one I’d accidentally changed to, but I had to bash on. It seems better suited to Blocks, which I have now come to terms with and (whisper) actually quite like and find easier in some respects.

      1. oh i know that accidental feeling so well – I have done that more than once!! I like the theme, and you can always change again . . . that’s if you have the energy.

        and yay on block, we did say that after a few weeks it would grow on you πŸ˜‰

  2. Nice theme change. Large font size which is so much better than those themes that have such small text that I have stopped trying to leave comments. Love the collage! Odd, but I have never been to Filey, unless it was when I was so young I don’t remember it. Brid, yes. Scarborough, yes. Whitby, Staithes, yes. My brother used to go there often to a caravan site near Flamborough Head. Perhaps it wasn’t easy to get to without a car? Anyway, thanks for the lovely colours and textures here, especially that seaweed – that’s beautiful.

    1. I liked the seaweed too, and I know I have another somewhere – but I can’t find it. Thanks for your comments on the theme change too. Yes, there are two blogs which I have pretty much stopped reading though in theory I like them a lot, because the print size, especially for comments, is virtually unintelligible. Believe it or not, we’ve only been to Filey once. But that will change – we really liked it, although we hadn’t expected to.

  3. Just wonderful being whisked away, Margaret – in blocks? Wish I could have walked there in Filey…Love your theme even if you don’t know the name of it!

  4. Wonderful selection. I am amazed at the high Sierras in Filey – went once when I was a child but must check them out if and when the ‘old’ normal comes back. They can compete with the Grand Canyon, at least courtesy of your camera! I also greatly admire the one of the nest on the Farne Islands (are they terns or another species?) and the one of the figure in the distance across the rocky outcrop at Staithes. But each pic deserves a commendation!

    1. I think they’re shags actually. That distant figure s Tom, and while Filey might be flattered at your comparison – it’s all about the scale, and these, though a great sight, are not spectacular in that sense.
