Half way through my packing and Bugsy decides he wants to come with me, sorry Bugs, you wouldn't like the journey, it's a long way.
It was a steady journey up, no rush, even though I had a late start due to me being so disorganised, and having to go to PC World for a Users Manual for this. I needn't have bothered, the man behind the desk looked at me as though I was a bit simple, they don't include the manual, you have to download it from the web site in PDF. Well I didn't know. How daft, you are supposed to have access to another computer to get the information you need.
I had better stop waffling, my room mates have just walked in, and they won't want to be up all night while I finish this. I came off the A1 and took the coast road for a while. I stopped to look over the sand dunes. Not sure where this is. A few miles down the road and I turned for Holy Island. The tide was out so I was able to drive onto it. There is a car park which they hope everybody uses because they don't want the place clogged up with cars. It cost £2.40, but as it was 4.30pm I didn't think it was worth paying that for half an hour, so I turned round and drove back.
This is Bamburgh Castle, I stopped in the car park and took the photo, no time to look around.
Next stop was Eyemouth, a quaint little fishing village, almost a town I think. A stroll around the harbour was nice.
I am not altogether happy with this hostel, there is no parking, and my car is on the road outside. I have to move it by 8.30am in the morning, or I get a ticket. It's a bit risky to leave it too long, I just hope it won't get broken into. I have to change rooms tomorrow night as well, a bit inconvenient. So I will be up early and out, to find another place to park. I am going off this place a bit.
By the way, I saw myself on the TV tonight, only one money saving tip, seems they have more than enough scrimpers now.
