Day 9: Craster to Dunstanburgh

Walked to Dunstanburgh Castle from Craster. House sparrows, linnets, eiders and ducklings, fulmars, kittiwakes and young nesting on cliffs in castle grounds, swallows, kestrel.

Walked around the castle, largely ruined. Mainly sunny. Climbed the spiral stairway in the tower. Am not very good at that these days; I get wobbly and fear I’ll lose my footing. It’s not simply vertigo; it seems I am afraid of falling down steps. How odd (and annoying – I even feel nervous on escalators these days).

Bought some famous Craster kippers. Lazy evening – watched Lost in Translation.
