We're overrun with the bitey fuckers.

Charmingly bleak Seacroft:
This week I are been to Northumberland and the Farne Islands.
No idea what the quality is like, I got them off the camera via a phone and the world's shonkiest camera software.
I think they are spot onmauvais
Especially the sea parrots.
Not very mundane though. You should have gone to somewhere like Blyth or Ashington
Heh. Actually could maybe do with your advice. Staying in Alnmouth, and aside from the islands & Alnwick, also been to Cragside. Got a few hours to kill tomorrow before returning home and it's probably wet - any suggestions?
What sort of thing are you looking for?
Off the top of my head: Wallington or Belsay Hall, or maybe head into Newcastle for a look in the Great North/Discovery museums? Personally I'd head out to the wilds of Hadrian's Wall or Teessdale, but they're both likely to be very wet
Aye I wondered about popping into Newcastle, will have a look into the others too, cheers!
High force is always worth a look. Nice walks along the top.

If you do, then the Side Gallery is also a bit of a hidden gem - Side Gallery - Amber
A few more from that trip - and I did go to the Side, so thanks!
And some from today, a walk from Bamford -> Ladybower -> Win Hill -> Hope:
I’m due another visit, I think the exhibitons have changed since I was last there
Is that third picture Win Hill mauvais ?
Proper knackering that one, if so.
Yeah, but apart from huge amounts of slippy mud and crap visibility, I thought it was alright.
It's this walk: Ladybower, Win Hill & Hope - Car Free Walks
Yeh, its best on a clear day, cold or otherwise. I did it in deep snow once on a tenish mile wander and it was lovely, sorry the weather was less than good.
Nice morning by the SY navigation.
Hardcastle Crags today. Too early for bluebells, entirely as expected. On the plus side, if I can borrow it from the National Trust, I reckon Hardcastle Crags would make a half-decent name for a detective duo.
DCI Hardcastle: CRAGS! I NEED YOU TO PLAY BY THE FUCKIN' RULES, JUST ONCE!
DS Crags: I cahn't help it guvnaaaah, I was born of a steep or rugged cliff or rock face, sah!
