1-9 June 2012 – Summer in Rothbury

We arrived just in time for the start of the Queen’s Jubilee weekend, and the weather was anything but summer like.

We were glad that we had brought jumpers and jackets with us; we were seldom out of them.

Nearby Amble is famous for its fish and chip suppers, and it was not long before we paid it a visit

We had gotten used to menu del dia in Spain, and forgotten how enjoyable fish and chips in a bag could be

We were very impressed with how much work had gone into the weekend celebrations; it seemed that everyone in the village had taken part

Jack particularly liked the street fair on the Tuesday

We were puzzled by tickets sold for the duck race, until we discovered that it was plastic ducks in the river Coquet.   Great fun and much enjoyed by the “punters” who followed “their duck” along the river bank.
