Bellingham Show was ruled out as the missus didn't like the sound of it ('too many stuck up country-folk' was the assumption) so I took her to Seahouses instead.
What a brilliant place! Weather was a bit blustery but the craic in the local pubs (especially The Olde Ship Inn - where we stayed) was awesome.
It was RNLI day yesterday so there was loads going on and we also had a half day on Lindisfarne. Such was the windy weather, the causeway crossing was fun, I must say.
Nonetheless, I must warn other SMBers to watch out for hotel/B&B prices ... 58 notes per person per night, albeit in an apartment 'suite' overlooking the harbour. Too steep for me, I'm afraid.
A simple curry in the Bamburgh Castle Inn (over the road) would have been 12 or 13 notes each if you include a side-dish!
We normally have weekend breaks in Robin Hoods Bay and this would have easily competed had it not been for the profiteering!
