Elly, Molly and Tara on the beach, with cliffs and church in the background

Elly & Molly & Tara

Originally uploaded by meriwilliams.

As you probably already saw, Molly has been up in Newcastle visiting us. I even managed to get a couple days off work to help Elly show her around, which was fun!

For those of you looking at all the photos thinking “Where the hell ARE they?” this was the rough itinerary:

Mon night — picked Molly up from the airport and scared her by explaining I can’t actually drive a car properly, before somehow getting us home.

Tuesday — drove down to the Angel of the North, then up again to the Quayside, where we saw the Baltic, the Sage and all the bridges over the Tyne. All of that was to work off a monster breakfast at Belle & Herbs.

Wednesday — walking on the beach at Long Sands, Cullercoats, followed by a nice pub lunch a little further up the coast at the Queen’s Head.

For all those who doubt the beauty of a Geordie beach on a February morning, get your ass up here and we’ll prove you wrong!
