The tightly knit maze of colourful fishermans’ cottages at Staithes
encompassed by soaring cliffs so tall,
walking alongside a heritage railway line watching the purple
grey clouds of a distant summer squall.
The magnificent grey stone elevated arching facade of Whitby
Abbey ruins, an architectural masterpiece,
an icy winter wind blows across exposed clifftops, overhead
an elongated V of calling returning geese.
Looking out over glittering water from the towering striped
brown cliffs surrounding Robin Hood’s Bay,
the tranquil cerulean blue sea’s waves are tinted with sparkling
silver diamonds on a sunlit summer’s day.
Beached weathered colourful fishing boats painted in primary
colours wait patiently for the next ebbing tide,
an imposing curved grey stone seawall covered in tenacious
green seaweed protects the seaward side.
A white gold sunrise is painted with brush-strokes of ephemeral
pink above slumbering shadowed moorland,
transient sheep methodically graze exposed rocky ground and
sparse moorland, hills hardly touched by mans’ hand.
The arches of a Victorian viaduct reach across a wide valley
floor on a peaceful misty morning, almost quite still,
the patchwork fields of The Dales are enclosed by resilient hand
crafted dry stone walls and ancient sentinel hills.
The picturesque Shambles with overhanging timber framed Tudor
buildings and an old fashioned street name sign,
Yorkshire has a choice of windswept moorland, historical cities and
coastal scenery to be enjoyed on a day sunlit and fine.
