Returned from a family holiday in the Hauxley area of Northumberland. Impressed with Druridge Bay and Hauxley NNR. Hope to return soon. Kind regards

The weather has not been too bad I used to go to Druridge Bay as a child in the late 60's 70's and it is so different now since the pits closed much cleaner,Hauxley is lovely too,I know the area well as my parents came from Warkworth and Amble but I am an inland person now Hexham area.I hope your family enjoyed your stay and took lot's of photographs and if so look forward to your postings.

We enjoyed our stay here especially as the weather was kind to us. It is the second time we have holidayed in Northumberland; our first experience (coincidentally) was in Humshaugh nr. Hexham. I have already posted the wildlife photos on iSpot; the other holiday and wedding photos are for the family collection. A mycologist friend of mine is from the Morpeth area. Kind regards
