The Cleveland Way formerly led away from the cliff edge to cross the slopes of Beacon Hill. However, the track now utilises a section of the England Coast Path, which takes walkers closer to the cliff edge and provides superb views of Staithes, the harbour and Cowbar Nab, with Boulby Cliffs towering behind. The England Coast Path will eventually follow the entire coast of England, and when completed, it will be the world’s longest coastal path covering a total distance of around 2795 miles (4498km).

Menéndez de Avilés brought forth the overall development of Florida by establishing St. Augustine, the oldest continuously-inhabited settlement in the United States, as well as bringing European culture over to the state of Florida. After a month-long journey to the land of Florida, Menéndez de Avilés and his crew arrived in 1565 with the intention of claiming Florida for the Spanish crown.
Today, many people think of Pensacola as an active metropolitan beach town that sits in the most western part of Florida’s panhandle. It is a town full of life and culture.

The success or failure of the Spanish settlements was in the hands of the native populations that needed food, protection, and labor.
