Photographer's Note

This is a scanned slide taken taken in about 2003. We were walking with friends on the beautiful coast near Alnwick, Northumberland when a storm started gathering over the North Sea. These children seemed very happy playing on the sand. What of course caught my attention was the little green bicycle.

Alnwick (pronounced ANIK) is a market town about 50 miles north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and about 5 miles inland from Alnmouth which is close to where this picture was taken. It is a market town and has a lovely castle which has been the location of a number of films such as Harry Potter. Other castles can be found on the coast such as Dustanburgh and Bamburgh. The island of Lindisfarne (Holy Island) is also just off the Northumberland coast and accessed by a causeway that is covered by the North Sea at high tide. Northumberland is England's most northely county and much of its is actually further north than the southern parts of Scotland due to the diaganol shape of the border. It is a county of big landscapes with huge golden beaches, moorland and rolling hills and has two areas designated as 'areas of outstanding natural beauty' within its boundary - the Northumberland coast and the North Pennines.
