*Slightly more personal post alert* Whitby, in North Yorkshire, England, is visited faithfully by my family (through marriage) every year on New Year's Day. At least until some inconsiderate fools upped and moved to Australia. So we did it when we went over for a visit a couple of weeks ago. It certainly felt cold enough to be New Year, but perhaps I've just gone soft after months in the sun.
Anyway, Whitby may have been freezing, but it has lost none of its charm. Enjoy.
