I am very fortunate to have friends who run the Riftswood B&B in Whitby and so this weekend I stayed with them under the added incentive of a girls night out to be followed by a chance to test out a recent camera purchase.
Denzil who runs the B&B was very welcoming (don’t let Peter and Paula fool you, Denzil is the boss, although if you don’t want to be his friend he is happy to make himself scarce for the duration of your visit!)
Denzil on the lookout for new guests/friends.
The girls night out was great fun (no photos to post here!) and Peter made us a great breakfast, as ever the next morning.
However the weather was NOT kind on Saturday and I am ashamed to say I turned into a fair weather photographer.
If you haven’t got a Whitby Lucky Duck, then I am guessing that you need one!
A few grabbed shots and then I made for Sanders Yard for a HUGE piece of apple pie and a cuppa. I was very surprised to bump into fellow photographer and Lutenist Peter Lagan doing the same!
On my travels I did manage to buy a large piece of wall art for my home, with which to wrestle the crowds all the way back to my car! Fortunately it was very well packed.
I don’t think I am in the minority now to be hoping for some genuine spring weather…and soon! Next weekend would be nice.

This weekend I managed to fit in some photography just for me. Whitby Regatta was in full swing when I got there and it was so busy.
I arrived just in time to see the air display by the Red Arrows and then continued on to watch the rest of the entertainment on the West Cliff.
Entertainment included the eccentric and loud(!) drumming group Ee By Drum and a children’s entertainer Captain Kipper.
As a tourist it is easy to forget that the Regatta is about the races!
The event also coincided with the start of Whitby Folk Week so I was also able to see clog dancers, Morris dancers and street entertainers a-plenty. These included the baffling Flammable Pensioner (not pictured).
The Regatta finished with a grand fireworks display.
If you have a camera, look out for events in your area so you can get out and flex your camera muscles!
Do you have an event or party you would like to be documented through photography? If so, please Contact me for details and prices.
