The Most Glorious Sunny Day

Last Thursday I woke up to the most glorious sunny day. Not wanting to miss the opportunity of catching some rays and boosting my vitamin D I rearranged my scheduled work to the evening and headed up the coast to Alnmouth. One of the upsides of self-employment the ability to manage my own hours and as the saying goes 'make hay when the sun shines'!
During my time in recovery from ill health (read more about that here) the beach became part of my therapy. I found the way the sand moved with me helped me to focus on my balance issues. I always felt more confident walking on sand,. After all the thought of losing my balance and falling on the soft sand was a lot more appealing than flat hard concrete!

I believe that there is something soothing about the sea, the calming sound of the waves lapping on the shore accompanied by the colours and textures of the beach and rock pools. Its good for the soul.  It's a place of reflection and although I don't live far from the coast you always feel like you've left everything behind allowing yourself to switch off and relax.


After enjoying a long leisurely stroll I worked up an appetite so headed to Alnmouth main street for a spot of lunch. The Sun Inn  make a mean Stilton and Mushroom Pie a really good healthy portion and it is truly delicious, I would highly recommend! Left extremely full I had a walk around the village to work off that pie then finished off the day with a visit to The Village Tea Room.

A lovely day was had indeed.

 Enjoy your Bank Holiday Weekend!
