|There was miles of bunting - each flag handmade, by|
school children probably; best source of free labour ever!
|There were stalls selling, but I don't think they were doing much business.|
|Shops in the village have also decked their windows.|
|Not every house, but quite a few, are decorated for the occasion.|
|Loads of folks around enjoying the sunshine and the sparking blue water.|
|Some people actually felt it was warm enough to picnic |
outside Tynemouth Castle.
|The sea was up a bit, enough that the pier was closed.|
|I can't envy the people on that ship, though |
no doubt they've seen far worse weather.
|We decided there must be a ferry docked upstream to account for|
all the people around.
