WEATHER                  HOT AND SUNNY

START / FINISH         CAR PARK AT NEWTON LINKS

 

Well this could go down as one of the quickest write ups that I have ever done err Where to start?  In my early days when I started to walk again  I used to keep a written dairy with all the details in about each walk , you know distance , why , what when , how etc. etc. and over the years I have gone back to the dairy and put it into this format along with the photos and thus created this blog , well today 20.02.18 I have come to read up and convert tis walk and all I have written is , had a good day with Yvonne , took a picnic and blanket and had lunch / tea on beach , beautiful day and that’s it so let’s get straight to the photos , most of which I am certain Yvonne took as they are mostly of the small but beautiful flowers that are scattered around this area and no I haven’t got a clue when it comes to naming them …enjoy

Looks like we are off and judging by the photo the weather was really good

 

Looking back to where we left the car at newton links

 

Yep, flowers or are they weeds? If you know drop me a line

 

More

And some more (at this point I am certain that Yvonne must have had the camera

 

Yvonne

 

Up close

 

Looking to where the Brunton Burn runs out to sea at the bird sanctuary

 

Same again, there is a foot bridge where you can cross over

 

Grass (even I know this)

 

Yep another type of flower / weed I really don’t know

 

Red moth or is it a butterfly or fly?

 

Caterpillar

 

Having a sit down looking out at the sail boat

 

Looking towards the lime kilns at Beadnell harbour

 

Now on the Beach looking towards the Harbour

 

Looking across the bay towards a distant Dunstanburgh Castle

 

Lots of sea Gulls

 

Yep lots of shite hawks

 

Shadow dog

 

Looking across the burn towards the “twitchers hut” they section of a bit of the beach each year at nesting time and all gather round doing whatever twitchers do

 

We are heading to the footbridge to cross so we don’t disturb the nesting birds

 

More flowers, (Yvonne must have the camera again)

 

Looking across , sadly that lump of sand dune that stands on its own has now gone over the years the tides and weather have helped wash it away, pity it use to make a nice place to stop

And this is?

 

And this?

 

Small jelly fish yes we did pick it up (very carefully) and put it back into the sea

 

And off it went (well it went someplace don’t even know if it was alive)

 

And that’s it. I think I can safely say that we had a good day / afternoon

Cheers
