Weight and Stuff Report – 19 November 2011

Back down today, good stuff.

Today turned out to be bright, sunny and quite mild for the time of year – quite a contrast with last November. So, rather than get on and do the washing, I took the Metro to West Monkseaton, walked to the coast and headed north to St Mary’s Island. It’s been a while since I’d been there, and even longer since I’ve managed to arrive when the tide was out. So I walked over the causeway to the lighthouse, then back to the mainland.

And then I carried on walking though Whitley Bay, Cullercoats and Tynemouth, ending up at the Collingwood monument, at which point I decided I’d probably walked far enough for one day, and got the Metro back to Newcastle, where I made a quick shopping detour before getting the bus home.

I took some pictures, which I’ll sort out when I find some tuits. But for now, here’s one of the sun going down over the Tyne, taken from below the Collingwood Monument.

Garmin tells me that I walked 9.69 miles, which is the longest walk I have a record of. What next?
