We've Been On Holiday .


No ! not a Hobbit Hole - our camping 'pod' , we've been away for a week or so on holiday near Whitby in North Yorkshire staying in the above 'pod' on a rather nice camp site .


The weather forecast was poor - but luckily they got it wrong and we only had one wet day .


Charlie meets 'Sir Nigel Gresley' - and was not impressed - more interested in the packed lunches a group of women passengers were eating.


The steam train journey didn't bother him at all !.


I scan the horizon for ships and wonder why I've never got to grips with naval wargaming !?.


Picturesque harbours (Staithes).


Mrs 'K' (with very pale legs - says a lot about our summer!) and Charlie.


Whitby Abbey - always impressive ! . No wargaming content this holiday although the Abbey got me thinking medieval 'Lion Rampant' . The break has done me good and I've returned to the painting/wargaming table with fresh enthusiasm .

  1. That looks like a wonderful holiday. I must say that is a fine looking hound. I'd imagine he's a few years old?

  4. Great pictures. Not a part of the world I know. Whitby Abbey looks fairly spectacular.

    1. The Abbey is very good as is the older part of Whitby and famous for Dracula coming ashore in the guise of a black dog from a ship wreck ! - hence the town is overrun with Gothic Horror look alikes ! , Tony

  5. Whitby is a great spot for a holiday - did you count the steps up to the Abbey?
