I've never been able to find any sea glass...and certainly not pottery! *sigh* Such a wonderful place you live in to be able to go to the beach and visit a castle at the same time! Your grass most definitely seems greener than mine...


Such lovely photos and such wonderful descriptions of one of England's most beautiful counties.
Thank you for sharing your holiday memories with us.


Wonderful pictures and your writing helps one to virtually experience the sea. Thank you!


A nice thing to do with your 'beech tresores' is to use a hot glue gun to stick them to a plant pot, or fill a hurricane lamp with them and sit a big pillar candle on top.

We spent a lovely Spring Bank Holiday Monday on the beach in Northumerland - it was glorious, sun, wind for kites and the palest soft sand to dig :-)
This summer we found buckets full of sea glass (and pottery!) on Polperro beach - perhaps not as pretty as the North East but very fruitful!

Such lovely photos. I would love to visit your beaches some day. I live on the eastern coast of the US and never tire of the beautiful beaches of New England. Thanks for sharing your vacation with us, Lucy!

I must say your pictures are beautiful and your narritive keeps me coming back for more! I am truly envious and can't wait for part 3 :-)
Thank you for sharing your wonderful adventures!


Lovely beach glass. It has gotten very hard to find on beaches in the US.
Tidepools are one of my favorite things thank you for sharing.


I just can't say enough about your photos...so lovely! The rockpools! Oh my, would've brought such joy to my granddaughter...she loves looking along the coastline and inland bays (way down in Florida), for sea creatures...was delighted when she spotted starfish this past spring! I can just hear your children's excitement...what a thrill! The starfish and jellyfish are quite the wonder aren't they???


We love Embleton Bay as well & I've got some pics of my dogs playing there taken a few weeks ago on my blog. We've been going there for the past 5 years & it's the most wonderful stretch of golden sands I've ever found....


Lucy, simply wonderful!!!!!!!!
Thanks for the pictures.....Sylvia.


Looks heavenly. Reminds me of Cape Cod inlets where my kids used to find all sorts of critters when they were small.


Aren't the beaches up there just amazing -- we went to Alnwick gardens and Amble just a couple of days ago


I've combed on all coasts in the US and never ever found sea glass, one more reason I must visit your country one day. I definitely am feeling some mosaic-y creativity with those lovely bits of pottery and glass. A few years back Kaffe Fassett was busy with mosaics as well, and did a book on it. His books are always full of gorgeous pics for inspiration, if you need any more than the lovely bits themselves. Glad you are back, though. I missed your blog! How's it going with the needlepoint?


Beautiful photos of beautiful beaches - I was a student in Newcastle many moons ago and fell in love with the glorious Northumberland coastline. Long may it stay unspoilt :)


What beautiful pictures. I don't know this part of the country at all, but I must take a look. Thank you. I made your cranberry and pecan tiffin today - delish! And I'm hooking away on my Attic24 bag too!


Now I can't wait for tomorrows story, love it!

What lovely pictures you take Lucy!!! I am so glad you had such a wonderful time, once again you have brightened my day in the dreary police station. Thanks! Enjoy the "back to school" BeBe in Florida


I am loving your tales of Northumberland - it is indeed a magical place. Your photos are fabulous. Thanks for sharing your lovely stories :-)


Just beautiful and the sealife is amazing. What a fantastic holiday!


Those beaches look so beautiful and so empty - quite amazing! I think I must head north for the summer next year!
