Coast to Coast: Littlebeck to Robin Hood’s Bay

Our last day hiking. An 8.5 mile walk from Littlebeck to Robin Hood’s Bay.

The Hermitage. Carved out by an anonymous stonemason in 1799. Unknown if it was created for travelers or for the stonemason himself.img_8900

Very steep!img_8970 img_8973 An ogre. Robin Hood’s Bay began as a smuggler’s hangout. img_8978 img_8983 Ta da! img_8985I carried my ceremonial rock from St. Bee’s and threw it into Robin Hood’s Bay putting a coda on our journey.  img_8988 The four Brits we we enjoyed walking with off and on the last few days. Dave, Heather, Sue and Mike. img_8990 img_8992 img_8996 img_8998 img_9001 Saves on tires. img_9002 The view from our B&B, The Grange.
