Weight and Stuff Report – 6 August 2016

Oooooh! Down again today, good stuff.

Having got the shopping out of the way, I decided to take advantage of the weather and take the bus to Beamish, the Living Museum of the North. I’ve been meaning to make a return visit for ages, and I’m not surprised to find that the last time was five years and several cameras ago. This time I wasn’t visiting in the off season, so the bus took me straight to the museum entrance  :bouncy:  but I did have to wait in a bit of a queue to get in  :unreal:

But once I fought my way to a cash desk, I was able to buy a ticket which is valid for a whole year of return visits  :bouncy:  and I got a 25% discount by flashing my bus ticket (return fare: £5.90, discount: £4.63 – pretty good deal, I’d say).

As expected, there were a lot of people around, but it’s a huge site, so they were mostly spread out enough to not be too much trouble. Acts of photography were committed, and samples will be showing up over the coming days, but here’s one to be going on with:
