As you all know we are up north staying in Whitley bay for the week. We came up last year as well and we had a lovely time then and we have had a lovely time this year as well with the exeption of my health which has let me down big time. It was at Alnwick gardens that it hit me hard. I had had a lovely time scootering round the gardens taking photos and generally having a lovely time. After some lunch we headed for the castle and then the trouble started,they have cobbles inside the castle moat which played hell with my spine and right up my neck. I couldn't go into the castle itself as i felt that bad. Any way i sat in the main entrance and had a cup of tea,then i had to go to the loo and was promptly sick and i sat there in the loo crying.
Next day we went to Holy island(Lindasfarne) and if your disabled don't bother going. No disable access anywhere i could find,though they are good with parking for the disabled so much so you could park your car right near the castle,but we didn't even get there. We gave up and went to Berwick on Tweed which was lovely and warm,but by then i was too tired to really appreciate it. So home we came.
Yesterday we went to Tynemouth which was lovely as well. We went down to the pier right to the lighthouse on the left side of the river heading inland. I have got some lovely photos before we went and had tea and scone each. Then we went up the street and found a lovely shop called raspberry bizaar and i got a lovely dress for £20 ask Caroline as she saw it today. Anyway the next place to visit was the priory ruins,by which time hubby (bless him) saw that i was flagging fast so he said it was time to go home. By the time we got home i had to lie down and i slept for an hour.
This morning we just went into town to get some presents to take home. Boy was it cold out anyway we stopped for a drink and the lady in the shop suggested a little gift shop just up the road and it was great little place and i got a few gifts. Then we came home as we were expecting a visit from a good friend who also suffers like me. and what a visit it was. I love being with that lady and we had lunch together and a good natter for a good old time and it went too quickly,but the good news is we have booked to come up next year again.
Sorry for such a long post,but there is so much more i could say about this week,but it will kep for another post another day. xxxxxx
