We were in Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay last weekend celebrating our anniversary its a wonder we didn't bump into each other. Enjoyed seeing you photos,
I love Robin Hoods Bay. Wishing you a belated Happy Birthday. keep on Blogging and crocheting you are doing a wonderful job x


How lovely! Thanks for sharing your weekend. Nothing nicer than a beach-y weekend/holiday.


Happy belated birthday from another October baby. Thank you for sharing your birthday get-a-way with J through your blog. It makes me want to travel to the Yorkshire Dales all the more.
Some day. (sigh)
So happy you had such great weather. That alone makes everything more enjoyable


I went to this area for the first time recently, and I really really loved it. I stayed in the Boggle Hole YHA, I expect you must know it, it is just round the corner from RHB - it has been recently been re-done.

I really wanted to see RHB but I had a little one so a cliff-top hike was not an option really - I drove and could not get a parking space!

I have the solution for Whitby - go in the pouring rain - a LOT less tourists and a wonderful, grey, gothic weathersphere really suits the place. You must have seen the wonderful church at the top of the 199 steps - a beautiful grave there, about a woman author who wrote about the people of the land - between the heather and the North Sea.

Thanks for posting your lovely photos and happy birthday xx


OK--I can figure out sarnie, however, what is a buttie? although maybe not an issue since both involve bacon evidently.
My dad's family hails from Northumberland, (Morpeth) so seeing those photos gives me a glimpse of what I may be missing. So glad you had such stunning weather for your birthday trip!


The way you describe and photograph the english landscape makes me wish I was there. Maybe our summerholidays 2016 should be spent in the UK, I'm thinking more and more... Thanks for bringing inspiration not only on the crochet-part!
Love it!
You have taught me how to crochet by your blog about a year ago and now I've started a rainbow ripple blanket in Stylecraft yarn recently. I enjoy this crafting so much, I think I don't exaggerate (is that correctly spelled?) if I say I'm a happier person since. Thank you!

I still think of this as 'my' patch, even though it's almost an hour for me to drive to Whitby! Glad you had a lovely time.

Happy Birthday!! What a wonderful adventure. Really enjoyed reading and seeing all the lovely photos. Thank you for sharing, Love Sarah xxx


Sandsend is one of my favourite places in the world.H and I walk along the beach to Whitby in winter and summer.,nothing is more relaxing than the sound of the sea.

Looks like a delightful weekend was had 😊

Happy (belated) birthday Lucy. I was thrilled to read your blog, we were in Whitby and Robin Hoods bay on Saturday and Sunday too celebrating our wedding anniversary I am sure we walked passed your holiday cottage. Shame I didn't bump into you. It was the first time I have visited this area and I love it. We shall certainly visit again :-) x

Robin Summers

What an awesome birthday you had. I love following you as you walk and share the beautiful nature that you see along the way. Such beautiful blues, greens and reds!!



This look a wonderful weekend away with J and the scenery and cottage is fantastic. Sarah x

Christine Westerhof

Happy birthday to you!


I loved RHB when we went and reading about your weekend I felt like I could have been back there again. We walked past your blue door and admired the lovely little places very much. Unfortunately my husband has some mobility difficulties so the marvellous coastal walks are out for us but it was lovely reading about yours - not as good as doing it ourselves but almost.


What a beautiful Pictures. Here in Holland is all flat. That must have been een great weekend and a great birthday.

Pat hayes

Beautiful photos,and sending belated birthday wishes.I too love Robin Hoods Bay... But havent been for year, so thank you for bringing back happy memories. Love Pat xx


Dearest Lucy,

As an October Birthday Sister (mine is the 7th) I would like to thank you for this lovely belated birthday gift of taking us along with you and J for your wonderful weekend away. How special all those places have become to us through your blog!

Love from Missouri!

Jennie Craine

What a wonderful weekend, and belated happy birthday. I am glad you found time to tuck a little hookey into the day. I haven't been to RHB (but elder daughter has and loves it) but happy memories of Whitby. Shame the pubs were so busy though.

Judy Atkinson

Lucy, you are such a joy to follow!! You are age of my youngest daughter and I have made sooooo many of your beautiful blankets. I live in the US (Florida) and hope to visit some of your favorite spots one day soon. Thanks for showing us Yanks your beautiful country and the amazing creations that come off your hook. Happy belated Birthday.


Happy birthday - glad you enjoyed your wee holiday.


You had a great birthday weekend by the sea which you love. Living on the Isle of Wight I really don't appreciate the sea quite as much as you until you point out your love of it. Being surrounded by it you just take it for granted. A lovely post and a well deserved break for you after all your hard Yarndale work. xx lots of love Joy xx

Judith Pearson

Dear Lucy,your post took me back a bit and really cheered me up ,on what has been a really bad day (news that a friend passed away yesterday followed by a phone call that another friend is terminally ill).I have such fond memories of the places you mentioned-we dipped our boots in RHB at the start of the Coast to Coast (we did it in reverse) and took our first baby to Whitby when she was 10 weeks old.She was so small we bathed her in a large sandwich box !Sandsend was a favourite spot too. Happy days. Love to read your words and see your photos-it adds such brightness to our days and your crochet is wonderful
