Weight and Stuff Report – 9 September 2017

Weight: 231.4 pounds (16 stone 7.4 pounds, 105 kg)
Steps: 7,900

First of all, drum roll, fanfare, etc. Today’s weight is another new low for the year. Woo, hoo, etc….

I’d totally forgotten that it’s the Heritage Open Days weekend, so I’d totally failed to plan on anything. I did manage a visit to All Saints Church, and saw the inside for the first time. Photos of that will follow. After that, I had a bit of a random wander, passing St Nicholas’ Cathedral, where I took a photo of the tower with accompanying police helicopter:



Camera: X-T2
Aperture: ƒ/10
Shutter speed: 1/2200s
Focal length: 22.7mm
ISO: 200
Taken: 9 September, 2017
Location: 54° 58.2441′ 0″ N 1° 36.6697′ 0″ W

I quite like that one.

After a bit more of a wander, I decided I was ready to come home, and headed for the bus stop. But another thing I’d forgotten was that there were a couple of marches happening in Newcastle, which had led to road closures, and a general lack of buses crossing the Tyne. So after a while, I headed for the Metro instead. Metro were quite helpfully accepting Gateshead bus tickets, so I didn’t have to pay for that. And then I came home.
