We've just got back from Seahouses, it's only 50 miles away on the coast of Northumberland and takes us less than an hour to reach. If you know me by now you'll know I love to get away but it's usually never less than a 3 or 4 hour journey so when I heard about Breakwater Cottage I had my reservations, I mean we go to Seahouses quite often and I actually have a family portrait shoot on the beach at Seahouses this Wednesday!! I spoke to the owner of Breakwater though and what sealed the deal was the 50"Plasma TV for hubby to watch the England world cup match yesterday evening, this weekend was his Fathers Day present since next weekend I'll be shooting a huge wedding.
Breakwater Cottage is a luxury holiday cottage and everything has been thought of, it's quite a large cottage and plenty of room for us to amble about in, the beds gave us the best nights sleep ever and I loved sitting in the back garden listening to the birds and the lambs.
I actually took my DSLR this weekend and used it yesterday to capture some special moments, here's a few favourites and if you fancy snooping on the whole set just click on through to the album on Facebook.
On a boat to the Farne Islands, we were so lucky to see plenty of Puffins, Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Oyster Catchers and the rare Grey seal who all colonise the Farne Islands.
Back on land and we enjoyed a drink or two at the superb Bamburgh Castle Hotel while the kids played happily!
In the evening Abigail and her daddy had a world cup party while Looby and I went down to the rockpools and beach to explore and enjoy some time on our own.
It really was the perfect day...
