Blessing of the Boats in Whitby
Posted on 27th June 2017 at 16:18
We're so lucky here at the Riviera Guest House ...
Not only do we have a sensational sea view, enjoy sparkling blue skies and have the Whalebone Arch just a few metres away ... we can also hear the sounds of the seaside: the seagulls; the sound of the pleasure boats chugging in and out of the harbour; a boisterous sea breeze on hot, sunny days!
Yet we never forget our ties to the countless tides that sweep in and out of the nearby beaches, and we always remember the many men and women who make a living from the sea.
Paying homage to this dangerous yet evocative industry is the Blessing of the Boats, taking place on Sunday 9th July at 4pm in Whitby Harbour.
