Auckland Castle, Bishop Auckland, a bank holiday jolly family day and a weekend roundup.

Happy bank holiday Monday everyone, what a lovely weekend it's been, on Saturday I photographed some gorgeous sisters at Tynemouth Longsands, an adorable newborn with her family at home and look out for a post all about the Tipi party I photographed on Saturday night which is coming soon.


and then yesterday we had a lovely breakfast out followed by Ice-skating at Whitley Bay Ice-rink and then ice-cream at the coast on the way home!

Today we went to visit some huskies and ponies who live on a farm, one of hubbys' clients invited us to meet her brood of kids, doggies, ponies and there was even a guinea pig.

After that we swooshed over to Bishop Auckland for a stomp around Auckland Castle, i'm thinking that would be a wonderful place to shoot a wedding, it's very pretty and the surrounding park is fabulous!  We went for a very long walk and I can definitely feel it in my legs this evening.  I didn't take a lot of photos today because it was mainly about just having a wonderful family day together and enjoying the moment but I did get a couple of images

Out of the window a chocolate box view over the countryside.




my hubby is looking so good, he gave up alcohol last November, lost lots of weight and now he's given up smoking too and looks at least 10 years younger and has his chiselled jaw back, he gets 2 thumbs up from me for sure ;)





I asked them to be serious for a moment, bad mistake ;)




Baaaa!


More countryside, I love wandering and stomping and exploring, I guess another of the reasons I started my Uk Cityscapes project, there'll be a new post about that later this week but I still have quite a way to go with my crowd funding target, i'm 100% sure that I'm going to do it though!  If you could help by claiming a perk or even sharing the link on any form of social media, your blog, by email or even in person,(ooh humany) I would be utterly grateful. My crowd funding page is here!
