This Place Is Totally Outstanding.

Good morning to you all.

.

It is yet another day in the life of!

.

I don’t know what you did yesterday but I hope that there was fun in it for you.

We had a very very good day.

Big H was up a lot earlier than normal and said that we should go out in the car to Bamburgh.

For those of you unfamiliar with our local geography, this is an extremely quaint and beautiful village on the Northumbrian coast and sports the most beautiful fine sandy beach you could ever hope to see anywhere.

If we only had dependable decent weather, all the Hollywood stars would be buying homes there.

.

During the drive to get there, it was sunny but a bit windy, a really nice looking day, but the reality of it was that once we reached the coast it became cold, very windy and drizzly.

We walked around the village for a while listening to all the crows making a terrific racket in the trees on the village green, scene of one of my previous rescues, and then made our way down the street towards the castle.

Bamburgh Castle is stunning.

It is probably the most beautiful castle in the whole of the UK.

Unlike a lot of castles here, it has been kept in pristine condition and looks wonderful set on a winstone cliff right above the sand dunes.

This was the castle of the old Northumbrian Kings.

We walked on the beach for a very short while as it was absolutely freeing and then made our way back to the car, by which time I had an earache from the cold, my own fault though for only wearing a short faux fur coat and a tiny beanie hat with glittery bits in it.

Pretty, fashionable wear even, but entirely inadequate in the face of a northern March day.

Believe me, there is nothing cool in walking about with a bright red dripping nose and blue lips, not even when you have a glittery hat on.

Daft cow!

.

Once we were driving down the coast again and had warmed up we decided to stop off again at Seahouses for fish and chips, so we parked up and had a wander down to the working harbour until we were chilled again.

The hot food and tea were very welcome, although nothing beats Marshall’s in Tynemouth.

.

The journey home afterwards was lovely because by then the sun was shining strongly and Big H had to actually put his sunglasses on to drive safely.

Better late than never I suppose, if you let the weather stop you here though you would rarely go out!

.

Just a note of thanks to Big H, who took all of the lovely pictures for me, and then uploaded them in his normal obliging fashion.

I should really do it myself I suppose….but!

.

Have a fine one today.

I don’t know what our day will hold but now that we are retired the world is definitely our oyster.

LOL,

J.
