Fishink in Northumberland

March 21, 2014

I was lucky enough to catch up and visit my friend Sarah last weekend in Northumberland. There are lots of roman roads, some that run like big dippers with blind summits like you’re about to drive over a cliff and drops that make your stomach turnover.

Sarah’s house is always a safe haven for tranquil thoughts and beautiful nature.

Lovely to wander amongst the snowdrops and honesty.

And indoors, rich bursts of natural colour and views of nature both inside and out.

We headed over for a few hours browsing to Alnwick (pronounced Annick)  and Barter Books. The station that became a second hand book shop. My kind of place. I loved this tea-towel design which I thought may have belonged to Paul Bommer but apparently it’s someone called Peter Dodd. Fab style.

We also made it down to the beach at Alnmouth too. This dog spent it’s whole day digging up a huge rock, carrying it a few yards, digging another hole, burying it and then starting all over again ! Lovely to be with the sea and sun for a day.

Some great views across the landscape too.

Sarah’s dogs Queenie and Albert were my company for the weekend and we would get up at 6 am, and steal out of the house whilst everyone was asleep and go for a lovely walk. They got so excited … bless them, and I did miss them when I got back home too. Thanks again Sarah for a lovely weekend.

    I like Sarah’s house. Now I’m inspired to grow some Chinese Lantern and Money Plant. Love her ‘curtains’.

      Hi Joy, yes her home is such a lovely warm and beautiful space. Glad it’s inspired you too.

    Alnwick does not have a beach- You were at Alnmouth.
