29 October: Wednesday Walk 2

Happy Birthday DGS 1!

This week's walk was another favourite, on the Northumberland coast, from Craster to Low Newton, pub lunch, and back. It was a beautiful clear sunny day, though those woolly hats were needed again.

The sea sparkled correctly, the waves had nice white tops, and the sand was wide and emptier the further we walked from the pub.

In places various types of seaweed had been cast up by the tide; this colourful tangle of weed lay on an interesting sand pattern -

Dunstanburgh Castle was a popular place for many people to visit on a sunny autumn afternoon. There were lots of people enjoying the fresh sea air, and many photographs taken -

We returned to tea and our first slice of Christmas cake this season.

What beautiful pictures, I'm so jealous of your beach walk!

Christmas cake, of course! The banana loaf and the odd sponge weren't cutting it, but 'tis certainly the season for some Christmas cake, with a bit of cheese, yum! Especially after such a lovely walk. I am envious as we love the sea-side.
