Budle Bay near Bamburgh, Northumberland



It was April 2017 when I last posted on here and as I’ve just had a reminder from wordpress that my annual subscription is due….I thought I’d see if anyone was still out there!

Lots of stuff going on in the last year, none of which I’m talking about here except to say that my ricketiness has extended to my feet – which is pretty poor news for a walker!  However, I have a lovely acupuncturist who is working hard to help me get better and today Mr RR and I did our first good walk for a long time.  It was going to be just 4 miles and ended up being nearly 7 (!) which is probably a bit more than I wanted to do….but we made it back (well I hobbled) to Bamburgh for tea and shortbread which is the important thing!

Anyway – let me know if you’re reading and I’ll see if I recover enough to try another ramble later this week.

Bamburgh to Budle Bay circular (7 miles – which included some wandering about the beach)


The Lindisfarne Nature Reserve in Budle Bay:


Home to hundreds of birds but it was really difficult to take pictures because of the high winds and also my failure to charge my camera before we left home!

Oyster Catcher

The kite surfers were worth seeing too:


And across the bay – Holy Island.

The tides were all wrong for us to visit Holy Island today.

See you again soon hopefully!
