After a long, warm, and very dry autumn on The Yorkshire Coast, Winter finally arrived today with strong winds and heavy seas from The East.

Im not sure how others feel, but I believe that if we have to suffer winter, then it may as well be a bad one. Long, boring, calm days in Winter really do get me down. I would much rather see strong winds, rushing clouds, hail squalls and rough seas.

This video was shot today, 20th November 2018. I started the day at Runswick Bay where I enjoyed watching the tide coming in and disturbing all the birds feeding on the beach.

Around Mid Day I set off for robin Hoods Bay, calling in, en route, at Sandsend to catch up with my old Pal Mike Marshall of Yorkshire Coast Fossils.

Mike was too busy working to join me for the afternoon, but I’m sure he will be out with his camera soon enough.

By the time I got to Robin Hoods Bay the weather had taken a significant turn for the worst and the hail and rain driving in from the east really did not let up much at all.

A very difficult day for Photography. The light was really abysmal which meant you were never going to get any real great images today, however, I did manage to capture this video which shows what sort of day its been here on The Yorkshire Coast.

A day to wrap up warm, take a walk on the beach at low tide and then head off home or to the pub to enjoy the warmth of a nice log fire, a hot chocolate, or maybe a pint or 2.
