Moving on to Old Hartley….

A grey start to the day but fortunately remaining dry whilst we packed up and set off on the long road south! We were a little late away as I helped a neighbour jump start their lovely vintage VW camper but it was not a bother as per, we are only travelling about 50 miles to our next site at Whitley Bay. The weather deteriorated about 20 miles from our destination and by the time we arrived it was raining, not heavily but still annoying and wet! After a bit of a battle with a hose (which I lost resulting in very wet legs and feet!) whilst filling the water container, we settled down in the warm waiting for the rain to ease before heading out for a shortish walk.

Visibility is not great so only a couple of photos but the site sits right up on the cliffs looking out on St Mary’s Island and it’s lighthouse.

This is accessible at low tide via a causeway so we shall definitely be exploring it soon. For now though a walk along the coastal path to Collywell Bay, for a good runaround for Poppydog ….

The tide was high so there wasn’t much of a beach but enough for Poppydog to fly and plenty of stones for her to chase until it was time for us to make the damp walk back to site.
