A couple of things we did this week.

Two of Us-033I thought I’d share a couple of things that we did this week, we visited the newly finished Marina in Seaham, it’s gorgeous down there, it has a cafe overlooking the sea and the Marina so we popped in for a coffee.


It is quite historic and they have had a lifeboat restored to its former glory after on Saturday the 17th of November 1962,the Seaham lifeboat, George Elmy was involved in a disaster. Where crew and fishermen lost their lives one of which was my sister in laws father. You can read more about it here


The next little outing was one I hadn’t even thought about until I saw it on the local news, it was a news report featuring the Transport bridge in Middlesbrough, I mentioned to Chris that I had never been across it and that I would like to.

You drive onto it in the car and the yellow carriage seen in the above picture carry's you across the water.

So on we went.

It was much faster than I had thought it would be.
