52 Ways To Enjoy Robin Hood’s Bay: #40 Storm Watch
Storm watching is so satisfying and if you didn't already have a profound respect for the sea and her power then storm watching will hopefully rectify this.
Tucked away Robin Hood's Bay beach is as the clue suggests in its name it's very own Bay. Bay Beach looks across to the Ravenscar Headland that sits opposite right at the far end.
There are a few vantage points for storm watching the beach being the obvious choice to watch the white horses crashing onto the shore. If it's high tide or indeed raining, blowing a hooly, thundering or lightning then a safe bet is to storm watch indoors or higher up. The Bay Hotel perched in the Dock has the best vantage point overlooking the Bay. You can't really get any closer to the sea than this without getting washed away and eaten up by the sea’s prowess.
Another great vantage point high up and if it's a dry stormy seas day is the garden at the Victoria Hotel. With views over the red pantile rooftops and across the whole of the Bay and out to sea you can sit and marvel at nature's wonderful display.
Another nice spot for observing stormy seas is the Quarterdeck. A great spot to sit with Fish & Chips or grab a delicious bite to eat, hot chocolate & fresh hot donuts for afters from the Galley on the Quarterdeck.
You can't beat returning to your cosy Baytown Holiday Cottage after all the fun of storm watching and getting warm. Soaking in the bath, curling up in front of a log fire whilst looking out at the stormy weather. Hearing the wind whistle around the cottages, the rain tapping at the window and the sounds of the roaring sea. Bliss.
