I spotted this for the first time this morning... Can you identify what it is? :-)
Thanks to everyone who guessed and congratulations to Sparkle and Sheila who correctly identified caterpillar eggs. Also well done to everyone who mentioned eggs, close but not quite close enough! :-P

Over the past few years we've been regularly visiting Wrangle Show. The village show has been running since the 19th century. I wonder what the Victorians would make of today's attractions!
Despite the stunt show, acrobats and RAF flyover my favourite feature is always the fruit and veg competition. I keep promising myself I'll enter one year :-)

Whitby harbour is home to two lighthouses. The west lighthouse was built in 1835 and is the tallest at 25m. For a small fee it's possible to climb the 81 steps to admire the view :-)

“Seagulls are agressive. Do not feed them.”
I spotted this sign by Bridlington harbour. Are seagulls really aggressive? Have you ever been attacked by one? :-)

Flamborough Old Lighthouse is a 24m high octagonal tower built in 1669 by Sir John Clayton. On a clear day the top of the lighthouse is visible in Bridlington.

Ghost signs are old hand painted signs for businesses that are long gone. Arthur Sawdon was a seller of beds and carpets while Thomas Bryan was a wholesale jet merchant. Are there any ghost signs in your area?
The chalk cliffs at Selwicks Bay, Flamborough Head contain several sea caves, rock arches and other formations. The rock arch formed when a sea cave collapsed. Eventually the top of the arch will fall away, leaving a chalk stack.

The lighthouse of Whitby Harbour offers a fantastic view towards the ruins of Whitby Abbey.

This morning we spent a couple of hours wandering around Scarborough harbour which looks beyond the lighthouse into South Bay.

From the top of Whitby lighthouse there's a view of the harbour wall. The sea is to the right and the calm water of the harbour to the left.
