Here is a collection of images taken on a recent trip to Robin Hood's Bay. Its quite a lovely location, with a strong sense of heritage - despite the number of "ye olde shoppes" aimed at tourists. If you manage to come when the tide is out you can take quite enjoyable walks along the beach below the lifeboat station. Its a wonderful places to spend a lazy summer day.
