exercise is bad for you and so are Arctic Terns
So I was training to do a 5K run for ‘Race for Life’ I was up to 3k and quite proud of myself. Slightly pathetic I know but I really hadn’t run for about 25 years. Then I sprained my ankle. I didn’t fall or twist or do something speculator or even memorable to my ankle I simply jogged slowly – very slowly. Now I will be doing a sponsored hobble.
I have also enjoyed a day trip to the Farne Isles – with thanks to my lovely dad who arranged it. The Farne Islands are a group of Islands off the Northumbria coast near Seahouses. They are protected because of the wildlife in particular birds. On the day we went we saw Guillemots, Puffins, Cormorants, Razerbills, Eider ducks, alongside a seal colony. My girls loved the puffins best – whats not to love they are super cute! We all got dive bombed by the Arctic Terns who were protecting their nest sites. They were quite painful and unrelenting. Although I can’t blame them as we were walking in their territory. Heres a few pictures I took on that day.
