Sunday morning saw twenty-one members and guests meet at Smithy Square for the first "Summer Trip" of 2017. The coach left on time at 09.00 and we were transported to the town of Richmond on the River Swale.
The main reason for the visit was to go the "The Station" Art centre and view Richmond Camera Clubs exhibition. This was on the ground floor gallery and showed some excellent work by their members, all hung and framed very professionally. We stayed for an hour then set off for the picturesque town of Staithes on the Yorkshire coast.
This was quite a journey and took over an hour. We arrived and set off to explore this pretty post card setting. Members went off in small groups and some went off to find some lunch.
Staithes is a small town with very steep access. So for some the hills were quite arduous, but everyone had a great day and commented on how many photos they took. There were fishing boats, cottages on hillsides, breaking waves, and the over view from Cowbar Bank was worth the steep climb.
Everyone back on the coach at 4pm and our driver Ian made good time and got us home before 6pm. Personally I had a great day out and I think everyone felt the same.
