Haggerston Castle, The Trip Home

Mick and Bren went straight home (it's hard to find places to park with a caravan in tow) but Dot and I decided we would drive down the coast and do a bit of sightseeing, although it's not always easy to find somewhere to park the van.

First stop on the journey south, was in Belford, Dot's Mam and Dad had their honeymoon there and we wanted a photo of the hotel, as part of a fathers day present.

Then we drove to the coast and passed Bamburgh Castle, to get a shot of the Farne Isles and then on to Craster. Where we parked and set off to see Dunstanburgh castle, quite a long walk from the car park and the weather was very changeable. We didn't quite make it to the castle it started to rain, so we got a photo and set off back.

After a quick look around the village we set off south to find somewhere to stop for a picnic. We ended up parked by the river Coquet at Warkworth, with a nice view of Warkworth Castle.

Then is was south again, as we got to the new Tyne tunnel the weather got really bad so we just continued home.

One note on the tunnel, we were charged £1.20 going north and £1.50 going south??? and the roads are very congested while the old tunnel if being done up.
