Fantastic Weekend at Whitby

Fantastic Weekend at Whitby

We haven't had a proper holiday in ages, so last weekend we took a couple of days off and spent a wonderful long weekend in Whitby with my parents and our little son, Ben.  We got a couple of days of glorious sunshine, so on Saturday took Ben down to the beach for a paddle and to look for starfish and crabs.  He had a lovely time and it wore him out enough for an afternoon nap (peace for us at last!).

Later we went for dinner in Harry's Bar to celebrate my birthday, where they serve a fantastic kind of Whitby tapas and have great wine.  After a leisurely walk back to our apartment at Caedmon's Prospect, Ben was put to bed and we all settled down for a nice evening around the dining table, drinking more wine and chewing the cud into the wee hours.
