    Easter Sunday

    April 21, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    We were awake in plenty of time for the Easter Sunday service (just under 5 hours before). It was a nice service and Edward was much admired. We walked back by way of the harbour where Edward, having informed us of his hunger, had a mid morning snack on a bench outside the Harbour Master’s office.

    After lunch we set off for a walk along the beach towards Bamburgh, with Edward in the sling. On the way back Edward stood on the sand and jiggled his feet about a bit. It must have been a strange sensation for him!

    Easter Monday

    April 22, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Edward slept a little better last night, although still woke for the day around 6am as usual. After a slow ish start we set off for a walk, Edward in the sling. We walked past the harbour, which was still fairly quiet, up the hill and along the clifftop path, through the golf course, which was also quite quiet, and down onto the beach beyond. All the while Edward snoozed peacefully. Our return trip was the reverse and Edward woke while on the clifftop path. Once back in Seahouses he suddenly announced his hunger so we hastily made our way to our favourite feeding bench.

    We returned to the caravan via the Northumbrian Hamper, a shop in the town selling all manner of food and drink that one might put in a hamper, to buy ice cream to go with tonight’s pudding.

    Later in the afternoon we decided to go for yet another walk, this time using the buggy, and rather than contend with the hoards on a bank holiday afternoon we set off around the caravan site (being nosey) and then out along the road footpath towards Bamburgh. Turning around before the edge of Seahouses itself we headed back along the clifftop path on that side of the town, which was a little bumpy for the buggy.

    This evening we tested out the baby bathing facilities in Willerby... Edward was perhaps a little puzzled as to why he had his bath on the kitchen floor!

    Puffins

    April 23, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 8 °C

    This morning Andrew set off across the sea on a boat trip to the Farne Islands. This time back to Inner Farne, as Staple Island is not yet open to visitors.

    Sarah and Edward walked up to some benches overlooking the harbour and waved to Andrew as his boat left. While another baby, a similar age to Edward did make the trip, Edward’s parents didn’t like the idea and so Sarah remained ashore (Sarah’s treat comes tomorrow).

    There was quite a swell and the boat was tossed around a bit but it was still a pleasant trip. The lighting was bright but diffuse which allowed for some good photos of the puffins on the island.

    Andrew returned mid-afternoon to news that Edward had been a very good boy while his daddy had been away.

    Friday 27th April

    April 27, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    We are now back at base-camp otherwise known as Willerby in Willerby-land, Seafield in Seahouses. We arrived back at lunchtime and took advantage of the good weather by doing some chores. Warm and sunny and NO wind! Peter carried out an initial pressure-wash of the decks while Margaret cleaned up the inside of Wolfgang and took stock of food cupboards. We are now relaxing at the Ocean Club with a glass or two of white wine, catching up on emails and writing up the blog!

    We ar attaching a few photos taken from our camping pitch across to Holy Island. There is also a photo of Wolfgang with his new friend!
