We spent Half term in Northumberland.
Houses. (This is Earl Greys house and yes I did have a cup)
Paddling (or plodging as we call it up here)
The Holy island of Lindisfarne reached only by a causeway at low tide.
Huts of upturned boats.
So many castles.
The Farne islands. Home to families of grey seals pupping right now.
Picnic on the beach.
Hmmmm…. standing in the line of fire.
Alnwick castle. Home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and where the first 2 HP films were shot.
First ever electrically lit house in England.
Clan Howe, Happy days indeed…….
I cannot recommend this part of the country enough. We’ve been going for years and never get bored. Its a magical place, full of history and romance. *sigh*
