Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay

Just got back from a few days in Whitby, North Yorkshire. Whilst I was there I visited Robins Hood bay where I discovered some lovely watercolour paintings by Emma Ball of Whitby and Robins hood Bay. I love the colours she has used and by leaving some of the walls of the cottages the blank white of the paper gives the houses a sun drenched feel. The quirky way the houses are squashed  together iggledy piggledy makes you want to explore the tiny streets and ginnels! Robin Hoods bay is also reputed to have a network of subterranean passageways linking all the houses making it easy for smugglers to pass goods from house to house.
