On Saturday, Ma and I are heading up to Amble for the week.
I love Amble and last year when we didn’t go felt like a loss. For someone who until 6 or so years ago did not do holidays, I’ve been very lucky to be able to visit Jo in Africa and Strasbourg and Matt in DC since then, but the Amble holidays are the ones that recharge me. You will tear me out of London by my cold, dead fingers but if I had to live somewhere else it would be there, it’s beautiful and the sky is bigger (having said that I do know that the economy sucks and winter would probably be my idea of hell!) but I always come home recharged and refreshed.
Part of the joy is doing the things we always do.
We’ll walk on the beaches
We’ll go to Barter Books
Visit Warkworth and DunstanburghThere will be a day in Newcastleand on the way home we’ll stop at Belsay
There are always new places to visit though, here are a couple, I’d like to fit in, depending on how Ma feels about it!
