A Few Days in North Yorkshire.

A few days planned in North Yorkshire. 

Despite the weather forecast, we set off from a sunny Hopeman on a Friday afternoon - south....

Three hours later we were back home - lesson learned - the weather forecasters know their stuff. The snow gates were closed on the A9 at Drumochter Pass and at Blair Athol.

Snow at Drumochter Pass

Saturday morning, the Pass was open, off we set again. The roads were still a touch snowy over the high passes.

Drumochter Summit - not much of a view today

We had a few days in Scarborough...

Rough seas in Scarborough's North Bay

Jackson's Bay, north of Scarborough

Rafe, in very strong winds, at Scalby Mills. Views to Scarborough Castle

Lesser black backed gull and puffin


Scarborough's North Bay
The beach was covered by a layer of white froth...

And a few days in Pickering...

Still plenty of snowdrops
views towards Middleton from bridleway SE790853
