A Visit To Newcastle

I’ve been through to Newcastle in NE England today with my other half. While she was busy with what we went through there for, I took myself off for a walk to Leazes Park and then over to St. James’ Park – the home of Newcastle United. These photos were captured on my mobile phone…

Misty Walk

Yesterday morning was quite misty following a frosty night. As I was out walking with Poppy, I observed the mist slowly retreating, and enveloping Dent Fell. It was quite a pleasure to see. After around an hour of walking, I spotted a lone tree on Jacktrees Road, at Cleator Moor. It’s not a very special…
