Report from July 12th

A slightly longer walk than I allowed for as it was nearly four miles from my hotel on holy island to the mainland. I’m glad I didn’t have to rush to beat the tide.
Then it was walking mainly through farmland parallel to the coast. Easy walking but not very inspiring. Then back to the sea at Waren Mill, and then on to Bamburgh Castle. The castle was impressive enough but the excitement was increased by the apprearance of “England Coastal Path” signs and markers. These were unexpected and led me away from the path I had planned and pulled me close to the sea all the way to Seahouses.
It appears that they managed to avoid the problems Cumbria have had and stuck to a simple footpath, clearly marked, even through dunes and wwithout excessive signage.
I Had planned to do my washing in Seahouses on my day off tomorrow but the laundrette has closed down.
Washing in the sink it is then!
Mind you it does have a nice Italian restaurant which I followed up with a good pint at the Seahouses Social club for a princely £3.50.
Got to love it up North.
