I think you have them cornered, Jim It's a dead end street!

Cheers, Tony in New Zealand

I love the trim blue boat just out of shot bottom right and the Brooke Bond Tea sign. It still looks as though our jolly jack might be in the Stocks

I agree with Tony, these folks have no where to run do they?? (:>) Great picture, love it as well as the one I just commented on, or better maybe! :=) Sarah

Tony Reid--do they look so apprehensive? nah!! they didn't even notice ;>)

Nick Weall...there is a good atmosphere in this area Nick..I mean friendly and laid back.. the sound of people laughing and chatting away fills the square!! children squeal with excitement at the sight of the sea-side, nearby rock pools await their inquisitive search and good fish-n'-chips can be had just up the alley!! I was forgetting the availability of good English Ale and delicious pub food at this point!! and much of it will have been consumed in modest amounts!!

Sarah O---it is unlikely that they were even capable of running in view of my previous comment!!

Billy B@rk..Good to see you Billy, I know why you should think that.. Many of the buildings, like Sid's Cafe share the same solid architectural features so typical of North Yorkshire!! Smoke stained sand stone when acidic pollution from a thousand open coal fires soaked the buildings on those bitter cold fog bound days when the air hung heavily over the village!!

I hope that gives you a flavour of the township that is Robin Hoods Bay!!

Kind regards to you all ;>)

What a fun shot and title! They seem to be lining the streets waiting for you! At first it seems a dour lot but on closer examination they look a pretty jovial crowd.

joyfotos...the acoustics are quite unusual in this part of the village..even softly spoken words can be heard..It follows then that a carnival atmosphere from revellers, patrons at the bars and happy families, out of shot, whose mood and excitement can easily be felt and heard!! I am delighted that the photo conveys such an atmosphere!

You are most welcome joyfotos,,I have enjoyed your company tonight ;>)

Have they yet published an official casualty report for the encounter, Jim? ; ) It's a pretty little corner.
