Up North with Alison, 15-19 August

A lovely view from the side of the fort, Alison in foreground.

Tynemouth again. Sun! Sea! Sand!

While in Tynemouth, Alison and me visited The Land of Green Ginger, a church converted into an indoor market with an exhibition of some props from the classic 1980s childrens programme "Supergran"! It's true - look!

The 'Magic Ray Machine'.

The 'Flycycle'.

Some sort of sledge/C5 hybrid!
