29 December 2011 - Cresswell, Northumberland.

This afternoon we visited Cresswell for a walk along the beach and to take some photos.

The first three photos are views along the beach with walkers and sea anglers who were well wrapped up against the cold wind. The fourth photo is a view from the car park at the south end of the beach looking out to sea.

The fifth photo is a view along the beach with reflections in the wet sand.

03 December 2011 - Spittal, Northumberland.

This morning we walked along the beach at Spittal again, before visiting Berwick in the afternoon.

It was windy and cold but otherwise a lovely morning with clear blue skies, as seen in the first photo below, where some dog walkers were well wrapped up.

In the second photo a branch from a laurel bush lies on the beach, looking as if it had been blown there by the strong overnight winds. The next three photos are views of the beach at the mouth of the River Tweed where plenty of driftwood was lying about.
