Robin Hood's Bay
We are staying about a 20 minute walk up the hill from the famous Robin Hood's Bay on the East coast of Yorkshire, in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The weather thus far has been grey and overcast and a little blustery - exactly the kind of bleakness we come away in search of. This was the view yesterday, south along RHB. Pretty much the whole of Whitby and the village of Robin Hood's Bay is closed for the winter but we're enjoying the quiet desolation. The weather seems set to get a little better in the next couple of days and, indeed, there was enough blue sky by the end of this afternoon, to make a sailor a pair of trousers.
I am a bookcollector, bookdealer, publisher and writer living in Portsmouth on the South Coast of the UK.
This blog is my personal space for the recording of my numerous interests including science-fiction, victorian and vintage photography, gay literature, book design, typography, homoerotic artwork, the Amazon river, the books of Frederick Rolfe (Baron Corvo), Forrest Reid, sundry gay Victorian and Edwardian characters, Slash Fiction, Samuel R Delany, Vintage swimwear, Willard Price, Venice, and so on...
Alongside all of that you also get a personal journal of life and memoir and the self-therapy you have come to know and love from bloggers.
