Bamburgh

A week by the sea, day 1

With all the COVID-19 restrictions in place we have decided that we will not be taking a holiday this year so now is a good time to delve into the archives and organise a virtual tour of a few English coastal resorts. Welcome on board and enjoy the views! We would normally sign off our postcards with the hackneyed ‘Wish you were here’, but at the moment it isn’t appropriate. You may not wish to be ‘here’. If that’s the case, don’t succumb to temptation of travelling when you know it’s much safer to stay at home.

Day one – Greetings from Bamburgh

We start our virtual trip around the coast at Bamburgh castle in the north east of England. It is one of the few castles still in private ownership and inhabited. The photographs were taken on a very brief detour from the A1 whilst driving from Edinburgh to Durham.

The Wise and Foolish Builders. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

  1. I confess that it’s another of those places I’ve driven past rather than visited. Great coast but not one I’ve visited often.

    I have just done your virtual tour backwards – thank you it’s been great – I’m having a day off today and this is far better than doing the work on my list of jobs. 🙂
