We will forget about yesterday when the van broke down (a common feature of our holidays!) Today I had a lovely day getting lost in Newcastle. One of my favourite blogs is that of Pink Bow so I used her city guide to shape my day. I shopped, visited the library and two art galleries and walked until I finally kicked my heels off at the Baltic. Bliss.
One of the loveliest things about travelling is serendipity, when you meet people who change the course of your adventure with their wonderful suggestions. Following a night playing music in Whitby someone suggested a festival in Staithes. What a stunning place it is, with unchanged cobbbled streets and a working harbour as well as some lovely people. We loved listening to the locals in the Tea Room and watching the waves at nightime following an evening in the Cod and Lobster.
