Warkworth Castle, Flodden Field, Alnmouth, England

Continuing on with our Ogle Reunion trip in England several years ago, on day three the group was scheduled to take an all-day bus trip to visit several historic sites. Having been on the road for a week and a half by this time, constantly driving, we decided to skip the long day trip. Instead we rested, and then for lunch drove up the coast just a ways to the tiny seaside town of Alnmouth, England. We ate in a little pub and their fresh fish and chips were delicious. Here’s a few snapshots…

Cousin Jim Ogles from Arizona shared his photos from their day trip, so you can see the historic sites too. Thanks Jim!
