New Castle, England

We went to New Castle in northeast England because Mark had business there. What a beautiful place-I'm so glad we got to visit. We actually stayed outside the city in Tynemouth-right on the North Sea. The view from our hotel (an old victorian home that's been converted into suites) was breathtaking! The girls and I spent one morning just climbing among the rocks, playing in the sand and dipping our toes (only our toes!) into the ice cold water.
Our hotel
Can you see Mary poking her head out of her bedroom window? (all the way up on the roof) Tynemouth Priory and Castle-ruins of the 13th century priory church set on a steep headland between the River Tyne and the North Sea.
This was a fabulous Indian restaurant in New Castle. Janet (Mark's business assoc) and her family were kind enough to take us there.
