We went to the moors, finally. We drove through them, then down into the dales, then back up into the moors, and so on, but not too long, until we reached Goathland, where we caught a train to Whitby. Which is a busy holiday/beach town, with a fantastic ruined abbey that Bram Stoker loved. You walk up 199 steps to the abbey, which was shrouded in mist. Altogether gorgeous.

Then, we ate fish and chips by the river back in town, and took the train back. Back through the moors, very satisfactory. But you could spend forever there--walks and hikes and all manner of old stuff. It's the kind of place I'm not sure you could ever exhaust.

I envy you your moors and your dales, HT. But thank you for sharing them.

I, too, envy those moors and dales and river lunches, HT. Even so, it's nice to live vicariously through your post and pics. Thank you!
