Photographer's Note

We had another wonderful day today, full of sunshine and without wind. We have the right to go out to exercise although supposedly in Wales police was stopping people today on the way to the beach asking whether their trip is essential. Well, ask your Prime Minister to be specific, what is a reasonable distance to go out to exercise. I have indeed managed to avoid crowds this weekend. Staithes was quite desolated today while crowds poured to Saltburn where I have been yesterday.

You have seen the village of Staithes (pronounced like “states”) on TrekEarth before. It was one of the first places I wanted to visit when I moved to this area. It feels here as if nothing has changed since its most famous resident, Captain James Cook, has worked here as a grocer's apprentice (1745–46). Supposedly it was here where he developed his passion for the sea and then he moved to the nearby Whitby to join the Royal Navy.
