Staithes Gallery

Michael and I spent the last two days visiting Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay. The first purpose of the visit was to deliver some of my works to the Staithes Gallery. I hadn’t seen the gallery before – its rather lovely, situated on the sharp right bend in the High Street right at the foot of the hill as you go down into Staithes. We stayed in the Gallery’s own ‘Laura Knight Studio‘ just behind it. We saw Al (the gallery owner) early on Friday afternoon and delivered the five paintings and three ceramic sculptures.

The rest of that day and Saturday morning was spent dawdling in Staithes, taking photographs and making sketches. We lingered over food and beer in ‘The George‘ on Friday evening and again in ‘The Cod & Lobster‘ over an early Saturday lunchtime. We then drove away to spend a lovely afternoon at Robin Hoods Bay investigating hidden streets, taking more photos and doing more sketches. Driving home in the evening we stopped at Helmsley for about an hour and a half (around 7pm) where we ate seafood pancakes at Gepetto’s restaurant, finally getting home at 11pm – mildly exhausted.
