On the first day of the summer holidays, what you should do is leave the children fast asleep in bed (hubby was in charge - don't worry, I didn't actually just leave them!), and meet up with some friends and set off at 3.30am to Dunstanburgh Castle
in search of PeaceCamp2012. When we got to Craster we learnt the camp was closed due to high winds, so the lighting and the poetry weren't active, but we walked up to the castle anyway, where we sat with a flask and watched the sun rising over the sea.
and I decided that actually for all the beauty of art installations, you can't actually beat what nature does every morning.
