Weight and Stuff Report – 21 September 2011

Having had a bit of a rest yesterday, I felt ready for some activity today. After a quick trip to Tesco’s for essential breakfast supplies, and indeed having that essential breakfast, I took the Metro to South Shields. First I went to the Arbeia Roman fort, where I looked that the ruins and reconstructions. After that, I walked down to the shore to look at some odd sculpture, a red lighthouse and some boats. That took me back along the river to the centre of South Shields, where I got the Metro back. On checking with gmap-pedometer, I was mildly surprised to find I’d walked 3.75 miles, which isn’t bad at all. Here’s the map, which is available in zoomy interactive form on the gmap-pedometer page.

As you might have guessed, I took a load of photos, but for now, I’ll just tease you with this bit of oddness:

I don't see the joke...

It really didn’t look that funny…
