We headed up to Northern England to take in the Moors and the Dales. This part of England is rugged and soft and hilly and rocky and overall, just beautiful.
We stayed at a youth hostel right on the water, Boggle Hole. A boggle is a hobglobin, who they say haunts this place. I saw no sign of it.
We had to park our car at the top and walk about 1/4 mile down a steep road. The road leads right into the water and there's no turn around.
Boggle Hole is known as a smuggler's haven because the 'hole' between two cliffs was the perfect place for pirates to offload their booty.
When walking on the rocky coastline, you turn a corner and you get a peek at Robin Hood's Bay, one of my favorite places on the coast. This was my 4th time here as I enjoy it so much every time.
We could walk from Boggle Hole to Robin Hood's Bay by taking a well worth path at the top of the cliffs...
…through a thicket
Pastures with sheep and cows grazing were on one side ...
…and a steep cliff on the other, overlooking RHB.
The village is built right on the steep hillside with houses all higgity piggity on very narrow cobbled walkways.
The doors are so beautiful, each one giving a distinct look to the cottage.
The day was marvelous and the views not so bad either.
Was a bit too early for a pint though.
