Sometimes it’s great to spend time showing friends around familiar sights and places but within the past two weeks I have done things right here in Northumberland that I never did before thanks to our friends Nathan and Jenesta who visited from Baltimore. It was nice to be taken out of myself and my normal routines. I don’t go out enough!! My blog has been sadly neglected because of the somewhat grueling schedule of sight-seeing visits and stop-overs I had arranged and the best laid plans… but we did some stuff – hey guys? So in daily rushes, here is some of what we got up to.

Well I never did that before!

Meatball the Hedgehog

Comfy nest? The snake went a beard too far!
