By some miracle this past weekend I got a Friday AND Saturday off! Okay, I actually asked for the Saturday but when I noticed that Friday had been given to me too, I booked a train to escape to the country - even if only for the night!
I planned on doing a photo an hour post but I suck at those and for about the 6th time I failed yet again. You do however get to see quite a few photos from our very sunny visit to Berwick Upon Tweed. (Look at the difference from my last visit, here!)
My parents met us from the train and from there we walked though the rose gardens to the pier field and beach! Baker was strangely glued to my Dad the whole way, playing with his ball and then walking by his side while we headed around the walls and across the old bridge. Being treated to a chip butty we stopped near the docks to take 5 minutes before getting back on our feet and walking right along to Spittal, along the beach and up the cliffs! Altogether it was a good 3 hour/ mile walk but even with that, in the beautiful sunshine, a certain little man wasn't tired!
I helped Mam and Dad to paint over 48 fence posts ready for their summertime garden makeover so instead of laying on the new bed his Granny had got him under the umbrella, Baker lay on the path with the sun beaming down and could only be temped to shade with some ice cubes to chew on.
I look forward to the day we live somewhere like this again. Not only am I more relaxed and happy but just look at Bakers face running on the beach - it says it all!
Oh and can you spot Baker on that last photo?! :P
