Friday Blog Hop.
I don't know about you, but I prefer to travel by water. Which brings me nicely to Captain Cook and the Endeavour, on which he undertook his first long-distance voyage. Why this leap into the past? you may ask. It's because by Wednesday last week I thought that I had just about conquered the virus that has plagued me for weeks and embarked on the U3A coach trip to Whitby, on the North Yorkshire coast. Which is where Captain James Cook lodged whilst undertaking the apprenticeship which led to his journeys of discovery. Here's a scale model of his first ship, the Endeavour, returning to Whitby harbour, after carrying a party of schoolchildren, somewhat precariously in my view, on a trip along the beautiful, if rapidly eroding, North Yorkshire coast.
More about Whitby later. In the meantime many thanks to the team who maintain the Friday Blog Hop. If you would like to join in click the logo that you will find somewhere on this page (I've recently re-formatted and it's not clear to me if you get the same page views as me). You will be re-directed to Alexa Cain's webpage, where you will find a list of other people who are celebrating the small things in life.
Weighing anchor and waving goodbye, for now.
