Whiteout in the bay


Hard weather finally hit us here on the North Yorkshire coast a couple of days ago, with intense, heavy blizzards on Monday (below) and incoming storms continuing yesterday (above). Our first real snow of the winter, and so into the white to enjoy it - which we surely did, having the entire bay to ourselves...


....... and the bay was like the Arctic, with snow piling up rapidly on the on the rocks, seaweed, and even right across the sand; a rare and amazing sight, and another reminder of what a stunningly beautiful place we live in.








and how it is in the sunshine.....
