a lot of water

 5th December 2021, Rothbury, 2pm

A damp and chilly walk on the snowy moors.  It was a lovely invigorating walk.  Daisy stayed warm at home.

Down in Rothbury the Coquet is up a bit.

back the way you came

 4th December 2021, Warkworth, 9am

The tracks of a seal that’s been up the beach during the night. 

Its tubby body in the middle and two wee flippers. I think it must’ve fallen asleep at high tide then woken up a long way from the sea. 

It’s obviously safely back swimming about with his pals now

A pause for a view then turn back home...

safe and sand

 2nd December 2021, Warkworth to Amble, 8am

Another sunrise delayed by cloud at the horizon but when the sun eventually rose clear it was a beautiful morning.

It's always fun when there's snow on the beach.  Although there was a brisk wind there was no sand flying as it was all frozen in place!

We walked right up to the breakwater at Amble but it was so frozen and icy there was no way I was venturing out there today!

damaged and ancient

 30th November 2021, Bamburgh, 10am

A pleasant guided walk round the coast at Bamburgh.  The coast's ancient geological structures are unchanged by a mere storm.

Lots of post-Arwen damage in the village though.  The grove trees have been battered and the castle itself has many broken windows.

freezing nicely

 29th November 2021, Longhorsley, 8am

A dusting of snow which then froze.  A very beautiful winter morning.

After Arwen

 28th November 2021, Alnmouth, 4pm

After the crazy winds of Storm Arwen on Friday night, we're getting back to normal now.  We're lucky to have electricity.  Many in the village still have no power after 48 hours.

Meanwhile the afternoon light was beautiful...

...but wintry showers were chasing us down the beach.

nearly stormy

 26th November 2021, Howick, 7:30am

Stormy weather fortunately kept itself out over the sea.

When the sunrise happened it lit up the falling rain with award light.

Time for breakfast said Daisy
