Quick hello from Seahouses

We landed yesterday afternoon and I think it's going to be a great holiday. The village is lovely, the coast and countryside beautiful and the cottage pretty good for a last minute effort. There are a few oddities as with every holiday let - no upstairs loo and lumpy sofa - but it's pretty, well-equipped, and in a great location. We only had a 2 minute stagger back from the gooorgeous Indian restaurant for example and there are 5 pubs within a 10 minute walk!! The curry last night was heavenly a real cut above the norm. Not SW by any means but delicious!!

We went for an evening stroll yesterday along the cliffs and back across the golf course last night. It was STUNNING. A brilliant rainbow stayed over the Farne islands out to sea and we could see the majestic Bamburgh castle in the distance as we walked back into town.

Rich's night was made in the pub though. He had just heard at the bar that Chris Waddle was in the village on a golf weekend and 30 seconds after he told me, I said "Yes, I know....he's right behind you!". We got chatting to him helped by the fact that he happened to be with some members of MY golf club. What a coincidence. He was a lovely bloke, really gracious and friendly, chatted about golf and where they and we are planning on playing and Wednesday's result that day. As Rich's all-time Sheffield Wednesday hero, it really made his night. He was like a kid afterwards...grinning from ear to ear.

So that's all for now. No idea what we're doing today. Walking to Bamburgh maybe... Have a great weekend all.

Lovely weekend - lucky you. Hope it continues in the same way.


PS: Failed to comment on an earlier post but, yes, loved the House of Elliot and also came across it on ITV3 recently. Shame I'm not often home in time for it.

Somehow I hadn’t realised that you were going away – have a lovely break.
