Already A Week...

Since I was up in Newton - Underwood, Morpeth, near Newcastle visiting my sister, Tracy. We spend the Saturday shopping in Newcastle & Morpeth. Sunday, we went to the places in the photos below.

Alnmouth Beach

We found a sheltered corner from the wind as it was quite wild.

The we went over to Warkworth Castle.

After talking this photo we went into a chocolate shop & I had the most amazing French Patisserie, Almond Croissant & hot chocolate made from pure chocolate & hot milk.
Feeling full & a tad naughty, we went into a gorgeous shop called The Greenhouse. It sold so many things I wish it had been better light inside so I could have got a photo. Trouble was everything was touching & stacked on top of other things & you walked with arms tucked in barely daring to breathe. A lot of the items could quite easily have been made by an altered artist & I left with quite a few ideas, & of course not wanting to be rude I made a purchase!!

I bought a gorgeous square clock for my living room fireplace. It has a butterfly collage on each side & the top. I am trying to get a good photo of it but as we have had quite a lot of sunshine (& freezing cold wind) I am having trouble with the timing as Im getting shadows & the flash keeps coming on!!!
