This blog is being neglected, not as a result of a conscious decision but simply through lack of time.  In part this is due to the ongoing heatwave in the UK; I don’t remember anything like it since 1976.  We travelled in the first part of the year but now I am locked into a cycle of golf, golf administration and putting many miles on motorcycles.  In short, I am making hay while the sun shines because at some point this must end.

This set of images is from a trip to the coast over the weekend.  It is perhaps indicative of a compulsive tendency that the coastal walk should skirt two golf courses, Alnmouth Village and the Foxton.  Perhaps I am in need of help 🙂

    I think more than a few blogs are being neglected this summer as a result of the weather. I went 2 months between posts, a record for me. These photos exude summer in all of its sunny glory. Enjoy it while it lasts.

      Thanks Julie – Good to know this heatwave stretches from Hexham to Michigan – enjoy it too 🙂

    Just beautiful – but hot just like here. It must be rather many neglecting their blogs this summer. I am spending the hottest hours inside…so I try to keep up the blogging…

      Many thanks Leya – actually we need some rain soon – our greens are suffering and we only have a manual irrigation system. 99 years out of 100 there is never a shortage of rain.

        True here as well.

    Love the fields of gold and I have very fond memories of Alnmouth. Tall Ships this week Robin. Hope it lasts x

    Beautiful images. Glad you’re having a good (if really hot) summer.

    • northumbrianlight · July 9, 2018

      Thanks Su – yes very hot, not at all like the standard UK summer

        I guess with climate change, this could be the new standard 🤔
