Farne Islands from Berwick

Today we got up early to go to the Farne Islands ...

We took the Bus to Berwick, and then the X18 to Seahouses past Bamburgh Castle. We had a late cooked breakfast, and then took the boat at 1230 to see the Gulls, Shags and Grey seals, returning on the bus at 1500. The sun was shining today!!

Clumber Park and Knaresborough

We set off to Clumber Park, stopping for fuel and M&S shopping at Junction 17 of the A1.

A night of rain, thunder and lightning, to Knaresborough. This is site is about 6 miles off the A1, and has a restaurant, The Wanderer, on site, where we ate for the evening... raining all afternoon, quite heavy!
