So, briefly before I go on my very last, but very short, summer break- including a long-awaited visit to Bowes Museum - before autumn finally caches me up and I can then concentrate on the final throes of my novel, here's a summary of what has been happening recently.
We've been to the Isle of Man...where we had a good day walking around Peel Castle's impressive ramparts that overlook the Irish Sea.

|And on the ocean side where I'm actually gazing out to sea, hence the sunglasses!|
But before that, we stayed near Bridlington where we visited the newly refurbished Sewerby Hall, again overlooking the sea - this time the North Sea.
Then it was off to Weymouth, Dorset (and the English Channel ) for a long week when the weather was gloriously warm for September with stunning blue skies (except the day when Jon took this photo from near the Sea-Life Tower.)
I can't leave this mention of Weymouth without praising the fabulous camp-site where pitched our van. We have been members for over 30 years of the Caravan Club and usually prefer their sites because they are well-maintained with clean, superior facilities. But then we found Higher Moor Farm, a splendid independent site with its state-of-the-art showers and loos, well-stocked farm shop and the wonderful Daniel, not to mention Laura who welcomed us on out arrival. Nothing was too much trouble for Daniel. He is a star. You can find Higher Moor Farm on Facebook and Twitter. Please stay with them when you're ever in the area. You will not be disappointed.
And so, until later when I see you at my new blog entitled Sally Zigmond. (There's nothing like a bit of PR.)
