Boat Trip #VisitNorthumberland

My family and I visited Seahouses in Northumberland whilst on holiday, and we took a boat trip around the Farne Islands. We chose the Grey Seal Cruise which lasted for around an hour and a half, and it was lovely. After some initial chaos getting our dog onto the boat, we soon settled down as it motored out of the harbour. Poor Baxter does not like sailing! He calmed down after a while and enjoyed some reassuring cuddles from his daddy and grandma.

My daughters and I took in the sights and inhaled the fresh sea air, until it got a bit choppy and our youngest went a little pale. She soon recovered! We had a slight delay when we came across a stranded boat near the Farne Islands, but both crews worked together to get it moving again, and we all went on our way, phew! The views of the Grace Darling Lighthouse, the National Trust properties, and of course the seals and sea birds were amazing. It was a very enjoyable boat trip!

    Your holiday sounds wonderful. We visited Northumberland and Lindisfarne two years ago and went to many of the places you describe including the Farne Islands. What a special place Northumberland is, with its history and its sacred sites going back over the millennia. Did you visit Alnwick, with its fabulous gardens and castle, not to mention the brilliant secondhand bookshop Barter books?

    • Yes, I love it up there! We visited Alnwick and had a nice walk round, although we couldn’t go inside the castle because we had the dog with us. I also didn’t get to the bookshop because the family overruled me, meanies! We did visit the castle a few years ago for a Halloween event and that was fun 🙂
