  9. I do believe it was the northern tourist board that came up with the its grim up north slogan;)

    Ill be happy in another month as all the holiday folk will be gone and the fair weather types will stay at home

    Too late, I've been, and loved it. I couldn't tell which beach it was in the first pics because we found dozens of beaches just as nice all along the coast, especially up near Crastor.
    I'll be going back early next year to photograph the Puffins on the Farne Islands.

  13. I
    Yip, love it. Perfect sand for making castles. I also love the beach at holy island on the causeway. A lot of people drive past it and don't even know it's there.
  14. We came up last weekend to drop an engine at @Paul Weeding. We went to Bamburgh castle and along the coast it was lovely and not what we expected at all.

    I love the U.K. because it's so compact & you don't need to spend days driving from one place to another. :D:p

  20. I've seen a lot of the World and am genuinely happy to settle back in Newcastle and raise my kids here although I could do with some more cash to make it abroad to sunnier climates once in a while :p
