Weight and Stuff Report – 9 July 2016

Back up a bit today, which may be connected with yesterday’s office outing thingy. Or it might just be random.

If you’re reading this on Facebook, make sure to click through, or you’ll miss some photos.

I made a moderately early start today and got to the NE1 Newcastle Motor Show before it got too busy to move, much less see anything, which is what I failed to do last year. This time, I managed to get to see most of the cars, and even take photos without too may people in the way. More to come over the next few days, but here’s an MG:

After looking at the cars, I took a bus to St Peter’s Basin, then walked back along the Tyne to find that big boat thingy I spotted yesterday:

Not satisfied with that, I headed to the coast where I saw an interesting collection of different sized floaty things, ranging from some sort of board thingy to a very big thingy a bit further out:
