Finally, got to spend some precious time by the sea.
Spent a couple gloriously windswept days in the van in South Shields. Was hoping to get to Bamborough Castle a little further north, all sand dunes and stretches of wild empty coast - but maybe next time. Stuck with Marsden Bay, with its sea stacks and quirky cliff pub, and Whitburn/Seaburn where the sandstorms threatened to take a layer of skin off our legs. Lighthouses, fulmars, even bodyboarding. YES.
So, a head full of picture! Grey days, but the seasalt in the air made up for the lack of colour. About to go studiowards and will post results as and when. *big beaming smile*
