Oh my, this week has just flown by - we just always seem to be so busy there aren't enough hours in the day! But this afternoon, we slowed down and went for a walk out to the lighthouse. On the way we passed the Money Pit .......
........ which has even more scaffolding on it
it's a long way down from the chimneys!
as we walked along the Walls, a goods train rumbled over the railway bridge
when we reached the pier, there was a new sign, which seemed to be a list of what not to do
so we took care not to fall over bollards
or rusty old mooring rings
I felt seasick watching this fishing boat pitching on the choppy water
when we reached the lighthouse, there was the usual dilemma ...... should it be on the right
or the left of the photo!
in the distance we could see Lindisfarne
and Bamburgh Castle
the wind was whipping spray off the tops of the waves - but you can just see that there were people walking on the beach (bbbrrrrr!)
we quite often see a bird perched on this pole - it always makes me think of horror stories - perhaps Edgar Allan Poe wrote one?
there were lots of birds on the sandbank - and more people on the beach
I have been neglecting my arty photos recently - so here are two!
at the end of our walk, we popped into Lowry's for a cuppa and cake
Malcolm forgot the first rule of being a blogger's husband, and started to eat his cake before a photo was taken! He had a raspberry and almond slice, which he said was similar to a Bakewell tart
I was doubly naughty, as not only did I have hot chocolate instead of my usual tea, but I had a slice of the most delicious chocolate fudge cake!
weather permitting, we will have walk on the beach tomorrow - I need to walk off the rest of the calories from that chocolate cake! Have a good weekend, love Anne
