This morning was spent continuing to explore the Whitby area. In early morning walk along a causeway watching the North Sea waves crash against the rocks was . It was an impressive show until one large swell splashed higher than the others and soaked me. Don't worry M, the camera was safe in the back pac:k:) After trudging back to my accommodation to change clothes I decided to have those delicious Fish & Chips again for lunch. It will probably be the last chance I will ever have to enjoy some Whitby F&C's so why not. Now when you eat F&C's down Williamstown you are generally surrounded by sea gulls. Well the same goes in Whitby except their gulls are monsters. When these gulls squawk for a chip you are scared to refuse!

After lunch I boarded the Esk Valley diesel train for the trip to Durham. The train passes through the valley of the North York Moors and again the scenery was stunning. I was pleased to spot some wild pheasants, the red plume on the heads are stunning. Two train changes later and I arrived in the University town of Durham. The town is dominated by its impressive Norman cathedral perfectly placed on a rise overlooking the river. The old Normans must have known what a perfect spot it would be for photos 1,000 years later!

Tomorrow I'm off to Scotland. Time to start praying to the weather gods.
