Ouir holiday so far, gale force winds, snow and Mini blowing away……. 8

We had such a lovely time in Northumberland last August that we booked for Easter before we left the site!

We knew it was going to be rainy and windy for the  first couple of days, which was and is a real shock after last weeks 20 degree weather, but we came prepared with hats, gloves, winter coats and boots.

But we didn’t plan for the gales that we had today.  It was so windy that Mini blew away.  I have never run so fast in my life and when I got him his feet were off the floor.

But not ones to be deterred, we had fish and chips for lunch and then made our way to Barter Books to dry off and fall in love with the place, all of us.

We warmed and dried ourselves by their toasty fires and immersed ourselves in their shelves and then the boys came back to the van with a bag full.

We then came back to the caravan which is rocking in the wind and curled up and watched a DVD together.

A perfect couple of days.  Here to more this week.

    Sometimes huddling together indoors can be just as wonderful as being out in the sun. Having said that I hope you get better weather too!

    It’s years since I last went to Barter Books – I love that place. Must plan a trip back there. We are visiting family in Durham next week so maybe I can squeeze in a trip to Alnwick!

    Looks like you are having a lovely time. I feel even closer to you guys reading these posts having met Maxi and Mini in the flesh and how adorable they are. I wish I’d went to Barter Books when I was there we didn’t get a chance. I will sort that soon. xx

    My Family and I were at Berwick -Upon-Tweed last week the weather was like Siberia, gale force winds rain and hailstones the size of golf balls but the live entertainment by the staff was great they work long hours and don’t get much sleep but they always had a smile on their face no matter how tired they are. Top marks to Cloey and her team for making our week worthwhile it may have been been baltic outside but in the club it was warm and freindly will be going back later this year for a second helping.
