The return of WhiteTruckMan

Hi all, yes I'm back!

FInally got back from my short break and I thought I would post a very brief account with some piccies for people to make rude comments about. Went to a park up the NE for a last minute cheap break. This was the sight that greeted me on Monday evening.

It was nice being by the sea, but unfortunately most of the time it was a bit too rough for flinging onself in.

Fortunately I had a standby plan for inclement weather, and tuesday we went indoor shopping

I have another picture on the way out with my credit cards steaming, but unfortunately the lens steamed up! However, on the way back the locals were lucky enough to be treated to the rare sight of WhiteTruckMan of the north (dont try this at home, please!)

Wednesday morning saw us in hartlepool looking at the ships

So we went beachcombing.

We decided to collect broken glass. A bit strange at first sound, but glass that has been smoothed by water and tide looks really good, plus it kept the kids busy!. This doesnt really do justice to what we found

But it was while we were on the beach that I stumbled across a rare sign of intelligent life

Thursday saw us travel up teeside to a roman fort. I must say that parts of it have survived remarkably well, but beware the barbarians at the gate!

Friday saw us up early, a hearty breakfast, cleaned up and a leasurely drive home.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks to everyone who helped with suggestions. we did go to other places as well, but these are the ones we have postable pics for.

Nice to have you back WTM. I've been absent too but only because I haven't been able to log on. I changed over to cable and haven't quite got the hang of things yet. Wish I could go on a little break. But one of my lads has promised to help me sort my garden out this weekend. I wonder if he would miss me if I shoved off? I also enjoyed your little photo show... Take no notice of that "Brumas" fella, he's just jealous of the hat.

Nice to see you have a good photographer, I always get my head chopped off..

What a waste! All that surf and not a fishing rod in sight - the bass come close in when it's rough, you know. And then there's the beachcomber scene - where's the metal detector then? Apart from the buried WWII ordnance you might have picked up a real bargain! :o))

Good to see you 'back' - I wonder what the front looks like? :o)) TC.
