Leaving Grosmont (pronounce Gromont as I have been told, so why spell it with an s??) on this beautiful morning with ups and downs on the Sleights Moor, more or less the same scenes as the past 2 days.

Little Beck and the mysterious Hermitage/1790? are pleasant surprises.

Near High Hawskerview of WhitbyHighHawsker

Lower Hawsker. Whitby can be seen near High Hawsker. A caravan park ruining the beautiful nature and scene, also a reminder that this serenity is about to be over. A rude awakening to reality again 😦

Just a few more cliffs to enjoy before having to deal with the so-called civilization! Most hikers take their pix at the Bay Hotel sign but decided against that as the Sunday crowd was just too much after over 2 weeks of space! Have note even registered in the book yet! Found this other sign across from the Bay Hotel which is more to my taste. 192m 309km officially, without taking considerations with all the side-trackings, detours and wrong directions 🙂

Headed weary and fatigued uphill again away from the crowd (thank goodness!) to find the B&B but first a side-trip to the church. More on RBH after a good night sleep as will be here for 2 nights to rest and hopefully find somewhere to get a massage and time to reflect!
