North England Road Trip

Last week I took a trip back home to Yorkshire to visit some of the beautiful places in the Dales and the Moors. While I was there I took a road trip to see as many sights as possible in the north of England.

Here are a few of my favourite shots captured along the way.

  1. Some really great pics Sara! The “Angel of the North” – what the heck is that and how big is it? Looks like it was dropped there by aliens…
    Very nice!

    1. I know! I’ve wanted to see it for a while but it is shockingly big. Strange but also beautiful and like all tourist destinations, you have to wait for ages to get a shot without people in it! Thanks very much ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Sorry I missed you in our beautiful home of God’s own country.

    Great to see you were at some of our favourites of Whitby and Staithes. We often visit when we are in our caravan on the Filey coast.

    The last time we were in Staithes we saw a rather dramatic air/sea rescue with a Sea King, it was very exciting, muffled with comments of “Stupid idiot” with regard to the local guy who’d ventured onto the harbour side rocks in spite of numerous warning signs.

    1. Yorkshire is definitely on my list of favourite places in the world. Staithes was very pretty – no drama at all while I was there, I hardly saw another person! I’ve wanted to take this photo for a long time and was lucky enough to get a break in the clouds to capture a bit of colour. Then the rain poured down again…

    1. Thanks for the tip! I’ll definitely be going back and this looks incredible ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve just bought some proper hiking boots so I can really get exploring. Definitely looks worth the scramble to the top. Glad you had a great time, too xx

  3. Hi Sarah,
    so many lovely photos! ๐Ÿ™‚
    We went to Scotland a few weeks ago, for me it was my first visit and I had never heard of the Angel of the North before. Suddenly he appeared and my first reaction was; “what on earth was that!?” ๐Ÿ˜ฎ If I had known earlier, I’d arrange for a stop to make a photo. Thanks for sharing yours!
    Best regards, Dina

    1. Thank you Dina, I must admit I wasn’t sure about it as we drove closer but standing beneath it in the sunshine, it really was impressive and quite beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks so much! I’m glad you visited because now I’ve found yours, too. The UEA is a fantastic university with a great campus. Enjoy Norwich ๐Ÿ™‚
