Met Mike at the Monument for a walking tour of Newcastle. Wish I had taken my camera with me, there were some good views of the Tyne and the bridges which would have made some good photographs.
Of course the tour included visits to a number of pubs and the trialing of a few ales.
A walk across the Millennium bridge to walk through the Sage Centre, which alas was closed.
Friday was the drive back home. Not a bad drive, except for sections of the A1, where trucks insisted on doing their slow overtaking manoeuvres. Back home in around 4 hours, only hold up was on the M18 as we join the M1 caused by some road works.
