We explored the beautifully quaint streets and bay which was made up of very higgledy piggledy narrow streets and paths but even on such a dull morning the unmistakable coastal colours were everywhere .
I could sooooo easily live in this house , I went all day dreamy when I saw this house imagining myself living in this tiny fishing bay .
What a stunning place and me and Mr P. fell in love with the thatched Fisherman's Cottage which was right at the sea wall . But the cloud started to break and the sky brightened up , so much so the youngest took of his shoes and sock and wanted to fully experience being on the sand ( I thought he was slightly mad at this point but I wasn't going to stop his enjoyment of the beach ).
We were all in beach combing mode at his point , we knew it would be a good beach for Fossil hunting as it is part of the coast that is brilliant for fossils. Mr P. found this for me , wow ! blue and white pottery my favourite !
This was Mr P's favourite find , our youngest decided it was a Dragons egg .
We could not believe how the day turned out , it was so warm and the blue of the sea and sky combined was so intense . We all had such fun at the beach and the boys were seriously impressed with their hunting skills just look at their haul.

3, Another chunk of Fossilised sea bed.
4, Beautiful sea glass .
5, Blue and white .
We were able to stay on the beach until late afternoon and we were so relaxed , oh how the day had turned out from disheartening dull sky's to uplifting bright blue sea and sky topped of with the relaxing warmth of the sun . On a whim we decided to go to Whitby for extremely scrummy Fish and chips . You can't beat sitting on the sea front eating freshly made fish and chips ( especially when the fish is so fresh and local ). What a great end to a grand day out , it was just what our family needed.
Today whilst pootling about I've added our beach haul to our ever expanding collection of little gems collected at the beach , which lives on our upstairs landing windowsill . Here's a peek at what makes us tick .
We are definately going to go back to Staithes and Runswick Bay later in the summer , they are beautiful spots that are quite and unspoilt by tourism . But shhh don't tell everyone about these two little gems on the East coast we don't want everyone going ! ; )
I hope you've had a lovely weekend where ever you are and made the most of things no matter what the weather !!
Thanks for popping by and Ta ta for now . Tracy x
