Day 5, and it’s all a bit dull out there! So we thought we’d stay local today – and visit Alnwick, as we haven’t wandered round here for nearly 20 years.
Perfectly on cue, as soon as we parked, it started to rain. First priority therefore, was a coffee-stop at the White Swan.
The Olympic Suite
Then, it was a lazy walk around the town, taking in the various landmarks.

Apart from the Sun, the only thing that was missing was any Butchers’ shops. Where are they? But who needs meat anyway? – Ann bought me another shirt! With the shopping sorted, we headed back to the Cottage.
This afternoon it was a belated birthday treat for me from Ann – a hot stone massage, courtesy of local Beautician, Mel.
Woh! That felt good. Nothing left to do n… o… w… zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
Luckily, I woke up just in time to watch The Great British Bakeoff – together with most of the TV viewing public. And the winner is… HERE
Tomorrow: Another lazy day, plus a late night at Kielder Observatory for their ‘Night Sky Safari’ event.
