Had to see a bit of Blackpool in the day, the famous Pleasure Beach, which was closed, so no giant roller coaster for me.
The North Pier.
And the tower by day.
Seeing as I’m up this far north I wanted to see the Angel of the North. Apparently I don’t pay too much attention to the sat nav while I’m driving and ended up on the border of Scotland, some lush views from up here though.
Finally made it to Newcastle and the angel.
Stopped off in a pub nearby for a break from all the driving and some food. The Stone Trough was the name of this pub and it claimed to have the best burgers in the North-East.
Not bad, not bad at all.
Then just the boring drive home while planning my next trip, which will be London to get my visa for China. Eek!
