The sun is shining! It's a bit windy though and there are some clouds.

Off to Alnmouth today by car, the public transport was a bit tiring yesterday. The weather forecast says no rain, partial sunshine, 10 m/s westerly all day. Mind you it will still only get up to 16 C.

I think I'll wear a fuller skirt today, see if it flies up in the breeze.

It's polling day! I expect it's busier on Saturdays when there is a produce stall there

There are some interesting buildings in Alnmouth

@oldundieslover Amble is about five and a half miles from Alnmouth so i can go that way too.

Thank you Ronnie, I just wish I could do these site seeing trips with you,

Visited the Old School Art Gallery, Alnmouth, earlier.

Had a nice slice of mocha cake and an Americano in the courtyard, originally the playground I suppose.

No indoor seating. I wonder what they do if the weather is bad?

Picked up a couple of leaflets. One is for Ouseburn Valley. Looks like it could be worth a trip tomorrow.

It's rather breezy but I don't think I've managed to get any pictures of my skirt flying up.

On the way back to my car I walked around the garden of the Franciscan Friary. They have rooms with food for 60 GBP per night.

They describe it as a donation, does that mean they don't pay tax on it?

And now the comment you have all been waiting for! I hope. :-)

Today's outfit is the aforementioned fuller skirt, a white see through top, black cardigan, red jacket, red nail varnish on my fingers. I didn't get around to doing my toes so they are still Nightshade.

The wind in Alnmouth was very steady and wouldn't blow up my skirt but I found a suitable place on the beach at Amble

The Artisan teashop that I did eat in

The waste bins are pleasant to look at

Argh! I've got a crack in a thumbnail and I can't find a nail file, I must have left my only one in my car! I'll try painting over it with nail varnish. Can't be bothered to get dressed and go out to get it.

Time for bed, sweet dreams all.

In The Lounge, Amble, having a mocha while waiting for some bitterballen.

Very pleasant!

The Franciscan friary in Alnmout has a pleasant garden,
