Hello again folks.
I was without internet access for several days - then we went on holiday - but here I am back from Northumberland, my internet is working again and soon (after a lot of washing and ironing) I shall be back to normal.
The weather was dry, cool and breezy while we were away. The hotel - The Dunstanburgh Castle Hotel in Embleton - was superb and very well placed for visiting Holy Island (Lindisfarne), Alnwick with its lovely castle and gardens, Bamburgh with its castle, the Chillingham Wild cattle, the Cheviot Hills and the lovely countryside.
But, as always, it is good to be back - and better weather is forecast for later this week. I, for one, can't wait.
The photograph above is just a taste of Northumberland. It is of the castle at Lindisfarne - well worth the climb up although it was a windy day and the climb down was a bit terrifying. I'll be back when I have got things sorted out and put away. In the meantime, its good to be back on the internet and connected to you all again. I had 104 e mails in my inbox - and I read them all before putting this blog on. Now I must away to get the farmer's lunch. Watch this space.
