1. Whitby is an old seaport on the North Yorkshire coast. It is the home Captain James Cook (not Kirk) and is the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. We visited Whitby as part of a church retreat.
2. A great view of the harbor at low tide inside the seawall.
3. Hey! We're tourists!
4. Contemplating my eventual decision to revive the pirate lifestyle in Whitby.
5. A view of the ancient abbey and the monument to Captain Cook. The abbey is considered one of the most historically significant sites in all of England.
