We headed off to Corbridge (about 10 miles away) in the car then set off on a fabulous walk along the river and up, up, up 'Prospect Hill' which overlooks the Tyne Valley panorama. It was beautifully lined with hundereds of daffodils all along the way.
The path wriggled it's way through some beautiful little hamlets and farmland then headed way back down through a woody glade...to be honest we were both a bit glad of some shade.
We saw our first couple of swallows too, delighted but not quick enough with the camera unfortunately :o(
We came back down the gazillion and one steps and back along the river where we had a rest and watched the world go by for a bit before heading home, Just looking down at my arms now, they are actually starting to go brown!! I really hope the sun doesn't burn itself out before the Propper summer comes.

Whenever we are in the vicinity, one of my favourite place to go to is 'RE- Found Objects' an absolute treasure trove of found objects and gorgeous bits and bobs, I can spend hours in this place, pootling and snooping and wishing for a bottomless bank balance (sigh) Check it out if you are passing through...it's even worth making a special trip...I promise xx
