Two weeks ago Friday I ventured out for my first long run in ages (I count anything over an hour as long). The whole way I seemed to have my photography eyes open I saw so much I wanted to show you!

So last Friday I dug out Bill's older, lighter camera to take along a similar route. I kept adding a minute to my run to make up for the time I stopped to take a picture and then miscalculated how long it would take me to come back into the wind, so I was out for much longer than I'd intended. Never mind, that's 3 or 4 more calories burned...

Afraid I got far more pictures than I can ever share, but here are a few. (Clicking on the pictures, like with all the others, makes them a bit larger)

Where the River Tyne enters the sea

Approaching Tynemouth village from the east: the Castle (block on the left) and the Abbey (lacy looking thing on the right)

Boatloads of tulips!

Sunshine does wonderful things for the colour of the usually slate grey North Sea:

Long Sands Beach

I crossed the road here, as instructed

Mainly to snap this picture

Beach at Whitley Bay, with St Mary's lighthouse

I feel so lucky to live near such a beautiful place!

If I every get back to England, I think your area would be a wonderful area to spend some time sight seeing.
