Area around Whitby

We visited various places around Whitby.

Falling Foss Waterfall and tea rooms - a very steep road down to the waterfall and tea rooms, but well worth a visit. The cakes were lovely.

Ravenscar - the town that never was. In Victorian times they tried to establish a holiday town here between Whitby and Scarborough, but it never really took hold - probably because of the steep climb down to the water, but you get lovely views.

Goathland, which is the village of Aidensfield in Heartbeat.

We were really lucky with the weather - we only had one night of rain and lots of sun without too much heat!

Whitby and area 1

 For our second week we stayed in the small village of Aislaby, just outside Whitby, North Yorkshire.

This was the view from our cottage.

 We went into Whitby a couple of times.

And of course Andrew needed to get chips!

Keswick Convention

The first week of our holidays was spent in Keswick in the Lake District, at the Keswick Convention. This was the Convention's 140th anniversary - and no I have not been going since it started! Although we have been going regularly for the last 8 years or so. The first year I went to the Convention was 1984. Lots of things about the Convention have changed since then - the music, the technology, the seats, the format of the meetings,  but the message is still the same - All One in Christ Jesus.

This year the Bible Readings were by John Risbridger and were on Daniel, they were excellent. The evening meetings were also good and it was nice to see George Verwer back on the platform. We first heard George Verwer, formerly from Operation Mobilisation in 1987, when Gordon  heard God calling to him to enter full time ministry. A lot has happened since then, and it was good to see so many respond to the call to go forward on the Thursday night for mission.

We can often be found in Earthworks tent having coffee and looking at the books.

Of course we had to buy some.

 Derwent Water

A good first week of the holidays.

Weekend away

At the weekend Gordon and I managed to get away for a night to Lochearnhead. The Friday was lovely and sunny. Where we were staying was right on the side of the Loch.

The view from our window.

Unfortunately the Saturday was not so nice - but that's summer in Scotland
