Whitley Bay to Berwick

This magnificent beach is Seahouses and was absolutely perfect (apart from the howling gale blowing sand in your face!) In the distance you can see the imposing Bamburgh Castle…..

So 6 months in and our planned circumnavigating of the UK is finally less zigzag. We’ve worked our way up north to the fabulous beaches of Northumberland. Whitley bay was lovely, albeit bad weather, and Seahouses a gem of a town. Sadly due to high winds we couldn’t take the boat to the Farne Islands but I did meet up with some northern pals for a chin wag….

Lindisfarne was pretty but to be honest compared to Bamburgh it was a little disappointing. The most exciting part was the tide coming up over the causeway.

And then up the coast to the surprisingly splendid Berwick upon Tweed. An attractive old town with a castle, 3 bridges and quaint pubs. We spent several days mooching about and following the Lowry trail.

All in all Northumberland, and N Yorks before, gets a big paws up for beaches and pubs. 

Dogs on site – losing count, everyone, yep everyone, has a pooch. 

Oh and the daily robin visit had been back for a while so Elaine is pleased!
