Oooohhhh just lovely. I love our country!

Those pebbley gardens and lobster pots are amazing, I want a pebbley seaside home.


When our children were younger we had a holiday in Craster and one of your photos shows the cottage we stayed in - it's a small world.

There are lots of places in the UK I love and Northumberland is one of them. On Sept 12th we go to Devon, another of my favorites


I have really enjoyed reading your holiday posts, and looking at the gorgeous pictures.

Some of the pictures in the first post, especially the harbour, seemed familiar, then I realised it was because some of the TV series 'Distant Shores' was shot in Craster!


I like your photos, they are beautiful!!


Valerian is such a sea-sidey plant! There is masses and masses of it at Pevensey Bay (East Sussex) and now my mum has a huge amount of it growing in the front garden (Northants). It's finished now but comes back with a vengeance next year so if your seeds don't work out I'm sure I can pinch you a bit for your garden :-)

Your pictures are lovely - thanks for sharing we all feel like we've with you too!


Nice to have you back and glad you had a nice holiday. Looking forward to your next crochet inspiration too.


Those sunsets are just peachy. City breaks are great, but I am pining for a bit of sea.


your pictures are beautifull! love the rainbow! seems you had a great time.


i would love to live right there by the sea...


What a beautiful countryside! I'm adding it to my "to travel to" list...I really must confer with you about the "must sees"...you're a marvel at the off-the-beaten-path places...the things I crave to see :-)


It looks a wonderful place my kind of holiday

I won't tell if you don't! I was in Craster on Friday - good job I've given up trying to crochet, otherwise I could have knocked on your door... Lordy, that makes me sound a bit stalker-ish(& I am not!) Did you like the gallery?

Your photo's are as lovely as ever.

Love Lydia xx


Sounds like such a dreamy trip--the rain as well as the shine. I adore stormy weather at the beach.

Welcome back!


Thanks Lucy...must be the talented person behind the camera then hehe...such wonderful photos they are

Wow what a wonderful break - I feel as if I've been away myself. Thanks Lucy, I do enjoy your holiday diaries.

I love simple holidays, just a harbour, some rockpools and plenty of ice cream will do me!

We stayed in Bamburgh and Seahouses on our honeymoon and loved the beautiful landscapes and coastline. Craster looks wonderful, I feel a trip coming on soon!

Welcome home and looking forward to seeing your exciting sounding patchwork project progress.
Love Stephx


Your holidays are so like mine with my children,rock pools and ice cream etc.My oldest baby(boy) is now 13 and my little girl 10 and they still love exploring .They say to me often they will never forget these holidays and happy times, yours will say the same when they are older.


Beautiful butterfly!...any chance of info on your choice of camera?....l know its more the person behind the thing but a good camera could maybe help improve my snaps!....always interested in peeps choice of camera

Hi Lucy
Such beautiful pictures. Thank you so much for sharing them. Memories are, indeed, made of this.
And by the way, if your valerian seeds don't grow, my garden is full of plants, so you will be more than welcome to some, if you would like. Sue x
