The walk started in Whitley bay, but I was late and arrived in Cullercoats. That gave me some time to take some photos whilst the light was still good and meet up with the group later.
Cullercoats is still a ‘fishing village’ and it is nice to see the lobster pots and the cobles. This boat is one of my favourites.
Well I caught up with the rest of the walkers in the Queens head.
Time to leave here and make our way to Tynemouth via Longsands.
About 2 deg C, but it did not stop these chaps. Surf’s Up!
Front street always looks good, no matter the time of day and we walked down and into the Salutation Inn.
By the time we left here it was virtually dark. I spent three months in here, but then realised it was a different Priory!
Great views of the River Tyne at dusk as well, as we headed for North Shields.

We could smell the fish and chips from here! Looking up the Tyne below.
Last stage of the journey was the ferry to South Shields and a stop at The Steamboat.
Cold, but it was great to see the ferry at night.
