UK Trip

                                   

I'm due to visit the UK soon tommorrow, and I haven't even posted the photos from my last visit.
So here they are.
I spent some of the time in the north east in Newcastle upon Tyne.
These are all taken on the same afternoon and evening.
After meeting up with the family for lunch,
I had a wander off on my own,
down to the quayside.
Past the cathedral.


It was a lovely evening,
in early December!
After taking photos on the quayside
of some of the bridges,
I crossed over the Tyne,








and visited this building,
The Baltic.
It's an old flour mill,
turned art gallery.


     
As you can see,
there are a number of bridges that cross the Tyne.
And one of the photos below was taken from The Baltic
high up on the viewing platform.

       


I took this last photo
on my way back to my friends house.
I got caught up amongst the football crowds
coming out of the match.
The local team are The Magpies,
so called because of their black and white football strips.



Not sure where I'll get to on this visit.
I have only just finalised some of the people who I will be seeing!
But I will get back to you just as soon as I can.
