postcards from a young (?) man

hi everyone

well, i am not sure what you did over Easter, but my Uncle Trevor, when not taking rather avante-garde pictures of his brothers' birthday celebrations, went off to Whitby. this is a jolly splendid idea, as visiting Whitby is a great way to spend time at any time, really. just ask my dear wife.

instead of indulging us with more of his avante-garde photography, however, Trevor decided to send along some images of postcards he picked up whilst there. no bad thing, really, as whereas Trevor's pictures would have been interesting these cards are excellent!

here's a view of the famous 99 steps up to Whitby Abbey.

you haven't lived until you have walked up them on a windy day in December. twice.

as for the Abbey itself, here's a great portrait of it!

many thanks to Uncle Trevor for sending them on, and indeed to the original artist, Pat Bell!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
