It is raining this evening and feeling distinctly autumnal, yet it was only just over a week ago we were spending sunny days on the beach.
This was my first time to the Northumbrian coast and it really was beautiful.
We had a very gentle sort of holiday, strolling, taking photographs, noticing the details
and making the most of the sunshine.
The beaches were lovely,
vast swathes of sand
and endless sea and sky.
Calm, subdued colours by day
and then bright and golden in the evening.
A wonderful holiday.
