A little while ago we had a weekend at Whitby on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. Its a beautiful port town famous for its Whitby Jet Jewelery worn by Queen Victoria. Also the inspiration for Bram Stokers Dracula. When you look at its Gothic ruined Abbey you can see why. Even on a bright Spring day it looks scary.
The close up photo of the Abbey was blurred (user error) but below is the church next door.
It was chucking it down when we arrived so we had a soggy walk into town from the caravan site. It was so wet I resorted to putting a coat on Buzz, he was not amused.
I did find a gem of a shop in a back street, being after hours it was closed, I pressed my nose against the window drooling over the lovely fabric. Had to wait until Monday when I could go and shop. Judith's shop has been open for 50 years!
It's not a huge shop but packed with goodies. Well worth a visit. She even has a holiday let above the shop, what better on your holiday having a fabric shop on the floor below!
