29th July 2008 Foggy to start, better later

Could have been the weather forecast for the day: we went first to The Oxford farm shop for naughty fruit scones, home made strawberry jam and butter (plus tea of course) before going on to Berwick to the Morrisons to shop; then inland to Kelso seeking to escape the fog, and to a degree we were successful as at least the fog thinned down to a distant mist, though it was cloudy.
We enjoyed our visit to Kelso, sitting on the benches in the town square to eat our packed lunch, then journeying back through Kirk Yetholm and the narrow side roads to Wooler and eventually back to camp for an afternoon snooze.
When we woke to our delight the fog was starting to clear and the sun was coming out, so we drove to Low Newton and for the first time in days we could see the beautiful beach and Dunstanburgh Castle in the distance, after taking a couple of photos our next stop was Beadnell, and a walk round the harbour and back across the beach.
This change in the weather has quite raised our spirits!
