A Quiet Corner of Robin Hood's Bay

By TrevBatWCC    
Going back in time to 2016 on my last visit to Robin Hood's Bay, whilst on holiday in Whitby. Wandering the narrow streets there many of which are no wider than pavements, as here - this was across the street from one of the old cottages. Looked such a delightful quiet corner to sit and bask in the sun whilst having afternoon tea.
Reprocessed and re-worked the image and thought it would give us a taste of what summers were like!
We have a monthly online competition in our Camera Club, and I entered this for May's competition, the theme being 'In The Garden' (not necessarily your own garden!). I thought everybody will enter either close-ups of flowers or plants and this would be something different. Following the recent judging of the competition, at last night's Zoom meeting found out I'd won! 😃
Though I didn't ask for them, was amused at all the alternative titles given in comments on my previous upload, 'Is that really the time?' Really made me chuckle 😁 Thanks, everyone! 👍

Robin Hoods bay is a wonderful place to visit and you have come away with a wonderful image. So peaceful looking.
I'n not to sure if I could make it up the bank to get out of the bay these days. Probably Not
