Leader : Elaine Anderson. Distance : 13 miles.
Today we met up in Whitby for the bus ride to Staithes for Elaine’s linear walk back.
13 walkers including 4 new walkers who joined us – Linda, Anna and her 2 children Milly and Joel.
We climbed out of Staithes on the Cleveland Way before stopping for a break on the cliff top.
Very short showers caused us to don waterproof jackets 3 times over the course of the day.
On the whole it was a descent day’s weather. Our route went on to Runswick Bay where we had to cross the beach before climbing out again.
The benches at Kettleness provided our lunchtime stop. Halfway to Whitby.
On along the cliffs before we descended to Sandsend where some partook of icecreams.
3 miles to go before a welcome return to Whitby.
The Hurworth contingent of Ian (our chairman), Victoria and Robert had done a shorter walk from Runswick Bay to Whitby,
We all met up for the customary Fish & Chips in Trenchers restauraunt.
We all agreed it was a great day out, well organised by Elaine,
