Pilgrimage…

We are just back from a lovely holiday week spent in sunny Englandshire- firstly Northumberland, then Yorkshire and finally Lancashire. We swam in the sea, climbed mountains, and made the pilgrimage to Lindisfarne, barefoot over the sands (with some mud!) at low tide.

It was great to spend some time with my lovely family doing seaside things- and to appreciate again how lovely England is, with its layers of history laid down in a rolling landscape and in buildings of stone and brick.

We also fitted in celebrating the wedding of our friends Stacey and Bob. Congratulations to them as they start their married life together.

Here are a few photos- particularly of the magical walk over the sands to the Holy Island;
