This was the view from my bed on my recent trip to Staithes. I could lie there and watch the gulls swirling around the red roof tops….my idea of heaven.

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.
