We spent the week in the North East, using my parents’ place as a base. We didn’t do too much as I have been advised to rest whenever possible and I was a bit poorly. We went to Craster for lunch (crab!), walked around the small harbour and had ice cream. We visited Barter Books in Alnwick and I added to my collection. We went to Cragside with G’s parents, had lunch and tried on hats.
