Road Trip

Yesterday 30th Aug we decided last day of summer hols, so we needed a road trip, the sun was shining but boy was the wind also blowing, Myself and my partner set off in the landy to visit a local attraction we had seen on local tv this being Northumberlandi, the lady in the hills an approximate drive of half an hour we found the site quite easily not far from the main a19/a1m after the tyne tunnel.

Sadly as we are a bit out of shape at the moment the climb to the face was a bit to steep and as the wind was blowing to hard we decided not to venture to the top .DSC_0017

Next we continued our road trip to Morpeth where we stopped for a coffee and a browse of the local shops then we continued on our way along the beautiful Northumberland coastal route, up to Bamburgh Castle. I had been previously as a child on a family coach trip, we passed through Amble and Seahouses and the lovely Warkworth Castle all of which are worth a stop over if your having a day out,

Upon reaching Bamburgh We were amazed by the beauty of the Castle stood on the coastline in all its glory, not surprisingly its called the King of Castles. Firstly we had a walk along the beach and wow what a beach Miles of white sand and grassy dunes. You wont find a nice beach anywhere in the world like it in my opinion and plenty of places amongst the dunes to get away from the wind.DSC_0043 (2)

To top off our day we paid to go into the castle itself, £9.95 per adult and worth every penny the castle is huge and the admission lets you into 14 rooms  to admire the furniture, architecture and dress code of a byegone age.
