I went to stay with John and Victoria at Brunton House for the weekend - my final visit to Northumberland for the year. The highlight was spending a lovely afternoon looking across Budle Bay towards Lindisfarne in the distance, then watching as the sun set behind the hills. I don't go to Budle Bay very often as it's a longish walk done a steep hill - going down is OK but getting back up again is a different matter !
Another place I found very interesting was the dune area on the causeway to Lindisfarne. Lots of wind shaped, stunted trees and surprisingly, fungi growing in the springy turf.
