Easter Sunday started out with an early morning (10.30am) boat trip out to the Farne Islands to see the seals and seabirds.
The weather was perfect, blue sky, only a touch of a breeze and it was quite mild. So off we went on the boat with 60+ other people eager to see the wildlife that the boat trip had in store for us.
The first thing we came across was cliffs full of seabirds, Gullimots and seaguls. They were everywhere and it was a lovely sight to see.
Before we set off we noticed a crowd gathering at the path before you head down to the beach and a woman informed us that there had been an accident on the rocks, a girl had broken her leg and they were waiting on the air ambulance to arrive so we waited for a bit too, until it arrived, which was pretty spectacular then we went on our way again.
At last the castle came into view and it was only a short walk up in to the village where yes, we dove into a small cafe and had the most delicious cream tea. Afterwards we walked up to the Grace Darling exhibition in the RNLI museum and then just sat in the sun for the rest of the day.
Fantastic day filled with adventure and lovely things. A great Easter Sunday however it was one without a Choc egg........hmmmmmm I'm sure I'll make up for that !
