When you stand in Whitby and look out to sea you are, by a quirk of the coastline looking north, rather than east which you might expect.
The result of this is that around midsummer the sun both rises from and sets in the sea.
I have spent many happy hours either on the top or on the promenade by the beach huts watching sunsets.
It is an activity I never tire of.
And now I will be able to see it by looking at a painting on my wall 🙂
