Back in Craster again and the digital TV signal seems to have improved . DAB radio is OK too so I can listen to Radio 6. It's close to civilisation, but has the benefit of being on the seafront resulting in an incredibly relaxing atmosphere.
The lack of mobile phone signal means that I cant post direct to my blog , so I'm using the iPad to write this. Combined with the blu tooth keyboard the iPad is a decent doing tool!
Alnwick, Bamburgh, Lindisfarne and Alnwick are all with easy driving distance.
Craster is around 60% holiday residences , which at first seems a bit sad , but probably means that the village can survive because of the extra revenue that this brings in.
Robson's kipper smoking factory and restaurant and The Jolly Fisherman are still going very strong in this superbly located village.
Two days ino the holiday and I am already feeling the benefits of communication cut off. The internet and mobile phone networks connect us up 24/7 and that is probably not a good thing because you are always looking to do just a little bit more, though ironically I am cut off but I am still blogging!!
Hopefully I will find some free wifi or a mobile wifi signal and can unload my posts.
