Sue and I arrived Wednesday evening, Dot cooked us all a fabulous fish pie for tea, afterwards we played trivial pursuit in a battle of the sex's which the lady's won by the smallest of margins.
Thursday we all had a trip to Whitley Bay on a cold and windy day

On the way back to the farm we stopped of at the 200 ton Angel of the North for photos.

Hadrian's Wall runs close to the farm so we walked up to see it on our return from Newcastle.
|The wall was 4 metres tall when built but much of it has been recycled over the century's|
|Modern day legionnaires inspect the wall|
|The Scots were kept to this side of the wall|

Friday morning after saying our goodbyes we headed south down the M6, we stopped at Kendall in the lake district to have a look around and a cuppa in Neros. After hearing via the radio that there was a 12 mile tailback further south on the M6, we set the Sat Nag to keep us off the M6 and came back the scenic route, apart from the bit that took us through the centre of Manchester.
