Down a wee bit more today, which is nice to see.

I walked to work, but without stopping to take pictures this time.

I made up for the lack of morning photos at lunchtime, when I took another walk:

My aim was to take a look at Flow, a quite deliciously bonkers water-powered musical art thingy currently open just along from the Millennium Bridge. It uses a water wheel which is turned by the tidal flow of the Tyne to charge batteries which run some quite interesting things, such as this musical device which is testing the salinity of the water. And playing a tune.

All very Heath Robinson[1], and a good fun thing to see. I’ll have more pictures on show when I get the time to sort them out[2].

I continued my walk by a different route, where I got this picture of a peaceful little lane, just a short distance from some seriously major roads:

All very nice…
