Wednesday 18 May 2016. The weather forecasters got it wrong today. Heavy showers were predicted so I didn’t go walking. However, other than a few spits and spots around breakfast time, it turned out to be a bright and breezy day. At lunchtime I decided that I needed some fresh air so I drove the short distance up the coast to Bamburgh. I just had a quick mile and a half walk from the free car park, across the dunes, along the beach and back into the village for a pint before driving back to the caravan to watch the Giro d’Italia on TV.
