Runswick Bay

Our first trip out was to the beautiful coastal villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes. Many of these pictures of Runswick Bay were taken from the alleyways between the houses built into the cliff.

Hull

It’s worth an overnight stay in Hull if only to walk the splendid old-town streets and visit the art gallery. Our hotel, a Premier Inn, is quite basic, as you would expect, but it’s just fine. It’s on the edge of a trading estate so no great views, but it’s just a minute’s walk from the old-town.

Views of and from Fowey (pronounced “Foy”), Cornwall

I’m a little disappointed with my Fowey pictures. I took too few of the town itself and of the winding streets and alleys. Fowey is a lovely, small Cornish town at the bottom of a steep hill. The shops, pubs and cafes are wrapped around the winding, narrow roads. There is a small bookshop, selling antiquarian and local books but also some general novels. Fowey is small – but just the right size!

Our holiday cottage was a barely 5 minutes walk to the town, though it took a little longer on the way back up the steep hill. The many views from Fowey are of across the estuary to the small town of Polruan.

We had a fabulous 5 nights in Fowey. It was warm and sunny /cloudy apart from one day when it drizzled all day.
