The weekend

I had a lovely weekend. Saturday we walked Biff up at Beamish woods. Unfortunately, she didn't seem to enjoy it (she'd had a bad tummy during the night and left me a nice present to clean up on Saturday morning), and plodded her way around the walk. Still, I got to play with my new 7mm and 10mm close up lenses.
Sunday we went up to Bamburgh with Biff. She was a different dog and bounded along exploring all the bits of seaweed and chasing after sticks that Ian was throwing into the sea. She managed the walk really well, but was plodding and looked obviously tired by the time we got back to the car. Poor girl has slept most of the day today. Still, she does amazingly well for a 16 year old.

Biff and Ian, paddling. Even though it was overcast, it was remarkably warm with hardly a breeze.

A ragworm cast. Taken at Bamburgh.

Bamburgh Castle, taken from the water's edge using my new wide angle lens. Needless to say, the tide was out at the time.

Biff and Ian, walking along the river at Beamish.

Some ropey looking blackberries, but some of the first I've seen this year. Taken at Beamish woods using a 10mm close up lens.

Another one of Bamburgh Castle, taken from almost the same spot as the previous photo using my new telephoto lens.

    I'm so glad you had a good time! Yay for Biff! Bless her...great pics too...I especially like the ragworm one (does that make me weird?!). Reminds me of when I was litle and my mum and dad would take me and my sisters to weston-super-mare...we would run along the beach stamping on the ragworm casts cos we thought it would stop the worms getting out and chasing us!! LOL...we were stupid...

    take care love , Amy

    Yayy! It's amazing to find somebody who loves their camera as much as I love mine! I got to your journal through the link on Amy's page. I hope you don't mind!

    Bamburgh is on my hit list to visit. Nice to see some pics of it. I can feel a weekend break in the North East coming on...
