Out and About

You may or may not have noticed but I have not posted any blogs for a while as my daughter and husband came up for a visit. We had a lovely time and went to a few different places and saw things such as the door knocker above at Durham Cathedral. We saw the strange creature below at the Hancock Museum in Newcastle. The museum had changed a lot since I last went, there is now a large model of Hadrian's Wall.
Another day we went to Tynemouth where there is a castle on the cliff top.
After visiting Tynemouth we went further up the coast to St. Mary's Island

On the day before leaving us, we went to Kielder Water & Forest Park. The park has a lot of sculptures to see, some better than others. The viewpoint below looked like a boring shiny yellow shed from a distance but was very interesting once we got to it.
We also liked 'Mirage' below. Five hundred pairs of shiny discs hang high in the trees, reflecting light and glittering.
And the weather was good, stayed sunny & dry, I'll not say it was hot as it was quite cool at times, but it was great for April. If you want to see more I will be putting some photos on Flickr.
