Life begins at 60?
Since I retired I have become a writer, flower arranger,judge for Yorkshire in Bloom assisted in and presented on a local radio station, volunteer on an allotment for adults with disabilities and help to run a social enterprise with profits going to mental health charities etc etc
I live in West Yorkshire and spend much of the summer at the Yorkshire coast.
Northumberland never disappoints and we even had good weather for our annual trip.
We like to find something new to see and, although we have been visiting the area for decades now, there is always a corner we haven't covered.
The picturesque, former fishing village of Low Newton is a familiar haunt. In fact, the first time we came across it, terraced cottages in the square were for sale for £2,500. With a mortgage on our home, there was no way we could access that amount. You guessed it, these cottages are now impossible to get hold of and a week's rental in May is over £500!
We hadn't known about the bird hide behind the village, which is part of a pleasant circular walk which takes you to the beautiful beach with its rock pools.
