Our Holiday - Day 1

For our holiday this year, we went to Amble in Northumberland, staying in a rented house with my parents. We travelled up independently and we stopped off in Knaresborough to give Mark a break from driving and to give us all the chance to stretch our legs. We decided to pass the time at Mother Shipton's Cave. I don't know if anyone else has been there - I certainly hadn't - I was pleasantly surprised. We had a lovely walk down to the cave and well, by the river side and then through the woods - the sun was shining, it was lovely.

The cave itself is famous for petrifying objects, some of which date back to the 1500s. Edward particularly liked the cricket bat though!

We got back on the road after a couple of hours, feeling much better for our break. We arrived in Amble around 3.30 to find Mum and Dad had already arrived. The house was lovely (photos of house next week - on Mum's camera!) and we were looking forward to having a good look around. But first things first - kettle on!
