Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos; I feel as if I have had a trip to the sea myself. Just SO jealous of those pottery shards.


Hi Lucy!

Wow what a lovely day you shared with us! Delightful to read, I was almost there ;)

Thanks also for your mail on wich camera you use!

Hope the comming-home wasn't to challenging with laudry etc... :-)

I've redone my room, some pics are on the blog if you want to have a peep!

Take care!

I think my favourite part was the Jelly Fish rescue. Your blog and photos are always so loverly to read and see, thank you for having such a wonderfully colour filled little outlook on everything.


que belleza de cosas que muestras en tus fotos...lamentablemente no se ingles y poco puedo captar lo que escribes....pero sin duda debe ser facinante.

te envio muchos saludos

i love the sea glass and sea pottery. haven't been to the seaside in a while, hopefully next time i do i will come away with a haul like yours!


Beautiful! I'm most impressed with (& even a little envious of) your beach treasure... I've found a couple of pieces of sea washed pottery in Cornwall & was thrilled to find them, so perhaps I should take the children to Northumberland if the finds are so good there! have a lovely weekend xx


Love your photos, brings back good memories. We rented a house outside Bamburgh for a week back in May and spent many a day on perfect deserted beaches!

Lovely photos. We holidayed in Low Newton in June and loved the Embleton bay beach and the Dunstanburgh coastline, so it has been a delight to revisit it in your photos. At home, in St Andrews, Scotland, two of our three beaches have wonderful sea china - so fascinating. By the way, my household loves your caramel shortbread recipe - such a delicious fudgey topping.

I am living so very vicariously through you right now...*sigh*

The Curious Cat

Absolutely stunning photos! I love the ones of the rock pools - so clear and beautiful -I felt like I was there just gazing in with you in wonder! Love the little crab and I cannot believe the starfish or the jellyfish amazing! Who needs an aquariam with these sorts of delights? I love the picture of the sea bed too with all its wrinkles! Wonderful - best photography post I've seen in ages! xxx

You MUST post these on Panoramio, they are simply gorgeous. I feel very nostalgic when I see beaches like those... magical. Thanks for sharing!


Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous pictures. All the beaches look totally stunning. I'm in love with that sea pottery. I've never seen anything like that washed up before. Can't wait to see what you do with it.


It all looks and sounds absolutely wonderful! Glad you had a great time.


very cool

Thanks for sharing. xx

Oh how wonderful. You put into words everything I feel about this part of England. I live a little further down from Craster and never ever want to live anywhere else. Thank you for sharing your love of this most beautiful place.


Thank you, Lucy!

hill upon hill

OH wow wow wow. I have never heard of sea glass or sea pottery before. What is it? Where does it come from? I read your description of the pottery , I will have to google to find out more. It is amazing. All your sea creature finds too adn then a castle in the distance....your sand was so lovely, just like some of my favourite beaches here. I would say that English beaches are wonderful.


lovely, lovely, lovely. What a gorgeous star fish... my favourite!! Bec


It's so beautiful there. I've never heard of sea pottery. I love it! I do love collecting sea glass though, it's always a joy to find a blue piece.
Have a lovely time.

I am going to have to convince my husband to that we need to go visit some of the lovely places you write about. Thank you for sharing it all with us! Lovely, lovely, and I especially love the sea glass...beautiful pictures!


Oh Lucy, what beautiful beaches! So different to the Australian ones but equally captivating. I love your rock pooling treasures and intend to show poppet no.1 and 2 to inspire us all to more thorough efforts this summer.


Wow!!! What fab holiday you had, can't wait to read tomorrow's installment! I just love the sea glass and pottery, I wish I lived closer to the beach, although like many other readers have mentioned, I don't belive the US beaches give up such wonderful treasures. Thank you so much for sharing. :-)


Wow! It's truly glorious! You're rendering of your holiday experiences is so fascinating to read too. I love your way with words. And aren't kids great for bringing life and excitement into our days!?
