Our Easter trip

We spent our Easter weekend in Northumberland at my parent's caravan.  We had a lovely time!!

The weather was AMAZING!! So sunny!

We decided to explore Couquetdale - which is the area surrounding my parent's caravan.

We also paid a visit to the beach with the family dog

We also went on a number of walks

At the back of the caravan site is a hill.  At the top of this hill is a tower - we thought we would explore

A sun hat and suncream were essential for our walks.  We wanted to make sure Baby M had a good time but was also protected from the sun.

We decided to walk up the Simonside hills, also found at the back of the caravan site.  My mum packed at bag of water and snacks and we started on our walk.  Baby M loves being in his baby carrier - which is good as there was no way we could have taken the stroller on this walk, far too bumpy!

Half way up the hill we took in the wonderful views

We finally made it to the top.  Baby M had fallen asleep by this point, all the walking had tired him out

We had a lovely time

We loved exploring the local area

Both Mr M & I love walking and I was brought up by parents who love to walk.

It's a great way of finding new things and it's free!

We are back to the caravan in July for a week and we are hoping to visit more interesting sites nearby
