The photographs were taken in June on the Farne Islands; the Artic Terns attacked us, pecking our heads and leaving deposits on our clothes.  I’m just glad we do not have flying Elephants! The Puffins looked at us as if we were mad.

This set of images, taken in South & North Shields, much more civilised, and they have Coffee Shops.

We caught the ferry from South to North Shields to have a look at the fishing fleet and Ray Lonsdale’s Sculpture named Fiddlers Green on the Fish Quay, a memorial to honour those fishermen who died doing their job after leaving port.

We finished our time there with lunch, what else but fish and chips, and then we headed back to South Shields.
