Camping Crazy Near Whitby

When we were camping it was important that we all helped or we couldn't get the job done.Here i'm putting the bowls on the table for some soup.

That was our tent because it is so big we like to call it the party tent.

Sunset over Robin Hoods Bay


This is Runswick bay where we had loads of fun in the sea and with the sand.

Loads of people in whitby like to surf and here are some boards lined up on the bank.

Here is the sea we went crabbing in with our fishing nets.

We dammed and diverted a stream this is us putting water in the diverted section.

Louis made a fish sand sculpture with a sand castle as a head and striped areas as scales.

As the tide came in we got a wonderful view at our diverted stream. This is the horseshoe shape by the dark colored rock with water surrounding it.

We went to a beach called robin hoods bay on the last day camping in the farm. We decided  it would be  a good idea to walk there instead of going by car. 

This is a beautiful view looking down into robin hoods bay.

On the way to the bay we passed by some old alum works with an old cooker with stones and trails of ash in there.

We were following a track on the walk called cleverland way Ravenscar as you can see on this sign.

 This is a closer look of robin hoods bay.

 Louis and I were searching in the rock pools for sea creatures.

Walking along the beach to finish our walk of the day.

This path lead to robin hoods bay.

I like doing cartwheels everyday!

This is a village near the creature filled bay.

Another way to get to the bay is by going up and down this nearly vertical drop!

To end our fun we went to the park to have some fun before a long journey home!  :-)

Qualified Rabbit Handling

Its the week of the school reports and there are rewards on the way. There also birthdays not far off. On a number of occasions Louis has discussed the idea of guinea pigs. Keisha has been helping the case and put Louis through a rabbit handling training course. Here is the report!

The Quad Tribe

The name for this post was chosen by Keisha and Louis. After careful scrutiny of the map Louis decided we should walk White Edge, Green Edge, Froggatt Edge and Curbar edge.  We started from the junction of the A621 and Clodhall lane (near the path that goes to Gardoms edge). Keisha and Louis were keen to find a geocache on Froggatt.

Lots of long horn cattle feed here K and L thought this one was particularly cute.

I was fascinated by the Mackerel Sky!

Keisha Liked the Picture of the Bee for her mini beasts project

Refreshment stop for the Ride for Eric Bike Ride
We chatted with the people manning the refreshment stop for the Ride for Eric Trust. Ride for Eric is a Sheffield charity created to educate and advocate cycling safety and remember a great man.

Bouncing Around

Stepping Stones

Getting Protected for a Closer Look at a lot of flying ants!

Exchanging goodies for the geocache
After some zig-zagging a look at the map and the GPS watch we located the Froggatt edge geocache, hooray. Keisha abd Louis want to do more geocaching and suggested we construct our own. We go by the geocaching name happyhares. Our final destination before returning to the car was the ice cream van at Curbar Gap... hooray.
Louis and his peacock chair
As we returned to our car we met someone carrying a rather curious looking net, we asked him about this and he told us that it was a good time to spot dragonflies. As we were chatting we spotted a Golden Ringed Dragon fly. What a great end to our walk.
