never stop appreciating

 2nd August 2021, Boulmer to Howick, 9am

I watched a couple of cyclists on the coastal path as they rounded a corner to see for the first time the view of Howick bathing house and the rocky coast with distant Dunstanburgh Castle.  

I thought how wonderful it must be to be on a cycling holiday and to see this glorious view for the first time.  

Then I thought how wonderful it is to see this view as often as I do.

We should never stop

Appreciating what we see

When we're walking on the sand

You and Me

1st August 2021, Low Newton, 5pm

Heading for home walking Daisy and the furry family round the point after a great Plumhall gig at the Ship Inn.

dodging the raindrops

The path of my run down onto the beach

28th July 2021, Warkworth, 5pm

There were thunderstorms down by Newcastle and heavy showers up at Bamburgh but in between it was beautiful.

Rain to the north of me
thunder to the south
Here I am
Stuck in the middle with you

Daisy and I sat up on the dunes for a while.  We could have sat for ages but eventually got hungry.

rainy day blues

27th July 2021, Bamburgh, 9:30am

At 9:30 there were a few folk on the beach...

...but by 12 it was packed.

27th July 2021, Warkworth, 4pm

Daisy wasn't bothered about a long walk today and fell asleep while I watched the waves from a convenient rock.

A rainy day is on the way but the clouds are beautiful.

thus far and no further

 22nd July 2021, warkworth, 11am

While other dogs run around the beach looking for fun, Daisy prefers to sit and let the fun come to her…

23rd July, Longhorsley, 2pm

I couldn't resist stopping in the shady woods for a few minutes on a red hot day.

24th July 2021, Warkworth, 1pm

A beautiful day but high tide stopped us going beyond this point where you can normally step down onto the sand and continue up the beach.

Reading a book about King Canute perhaps...?

misty beach

 21st July 2021, Warkworth, 7am

Another misty morning.

Daisy was quite happy to lie around enjoying the peace and quiet

in the mist

 20th July 2021, Bamburgh, 9am

After a pretty start to the day I was heading to Bamburgh for a wedding when I saw Inner Farne sitting among the fret.

20th July 2021, Seahouses, 4pm

Much sunnier by 4pm and the colours around the harbour were vibrant.

in a quiet corner

19th July 2021, Craster, 11am

A guided walk along with quite a crowd of visitors now the school holidays have started.

There was one little quiet corner of serenity in the harbour where this wee boat was quietly staying away from everything that as going on.
