Weight and Stuff Report – 1 June 2014

Down again today, but that’s probably due to some advanced walkage…

I wanted to do something today, but couldn’t really decide on any particular destination, so I went into Newcastle, wandered down towards the Tyne, stopping off at the Side Gallery, then into the Guildhall to see an exhibition called Newcastle City Futures, which includes models and plans of various bits of redevelopment of Newcastle and Gateshead, including some ambitious ideas that were never built. Interesting stuff.

From there, I wandered along the Quayside, having a look at the Sunday market, which seems to have come back to life these days, then over the Millennium Bridge for a look around the Baltic. My Cunning Plan was to get the bus from there, but as the road was closed following an event, I had to go back over the bridge and get one from there instead. I had a quick look in a few shops and then came home.

Today’s picture is of some dynamic action on the Tyne. Well, a Police boat, anyway.
