residential…2011

We had a wonderful few days with four lovely people here in Staithes, even the weather was kind to us…  Sean was in his element as story teller /guide/skipper…  Thomas was part guide part cameraman… Tricia was on ‘kitchen duty’… Sean, Christine, Keith, Chris & Gill… The first day involved a walk along the foreshore from Staithes to the old harbour at Port Mulgrave… Thomas took lots of pictures and has made it into a […]

filming for the BBC…

Sean or should I say his boat are going to become ‘famous’…  Thomas’s bedroom too…  a film crew have been here in Staithes during May.   They were filming a new BBC drama called ‘The Body Farm’ staring Tara FitzGerald and Keith Allen.  Episode three is the one to watch for if you want to see Staithes… it’s going to be shown on Tuesday 27th September at 9pm.

Classic day on the foreshore…

We have a winter course this Sunday 17th January… so Tricia dropped me off at the top of Port Mulgrave to walk down with the first load of supplies  and check the hut over… but it was really just an excuse to be able to walk home along the foreshore… the weather was glorious… sharp…  clear & beautiful sunshine… with so much snow inland and with the cliffs and foreshore been clear it seems that […]

the foreshore at it's best…

over the holiday period we have been on some great walks… one was up to the alum mines at the top of Boulby… with the snow on the ground the usually desolate scenery was more impressive than it normal is… Today’s walk was only a short one because of the constant snow showers… for the last few weeks the wind has either been easterly or northerly which is the best direction for washing flotsam & […]
