Looking towards the harbour mouth with an unusual pleasure boat putting out to sea - despite appearances she's diesel powered!


Pleasure boat at Whitby

Harbour mouth at Whitby

The harbour mouth is protected by these curved breakwaters that will keep the worst of a heavy sea from penetrating into the harbour.
