Up again today, as the oscillations continue.

It was back to the usual Saturday routine today – breakfast and shopping. I then decided to make a third attempt at my plan for a walk along the seafront from Seaburn to Roker. This time, there were no Metro-related issues, but by the time the Metro left Newcastle, the weather was looking nasty enough to put me off having a walk along an exposed seafront. So, I stayed on to Sunderland, and went to the Museum and Winter Gardens, where I was happy to see the BP Portrait Award exhibition, which contained a remarkable variety of painting styles.

After that, I got a bus towards South Shields, with the vague idea of getting out somewhere along the coast. But the weather was still a bit nasty, and as it happens there’s a load of drainage work being done along the stretch of seafront I’d have wanted to walk along, so I stayed on the bus, had a short wander around South Shields, then cam home.

Here’s another photo from yesterday’s York trip. This is the quite large Chinese engine, given some Tonality Pro treatment:
