|We are a bit tired.|
|At least there was room on the train.|
|Those were some swollen feet.|
|This sandwich looks an awful lot like it came from Fresh & Easy. |
But the bacon was more like prosciutto and pretty gross.
One more 45 minute train ride, a little walk, and we made it to their house. After a trip like that, to lay down anywhere, even on the floor, was more amazing than I could have anticipated. So there I laid for a bit until Tyler and I headed out for food.
Obviously we had to get fish and chips. We went to this little shop and for seven or eight dollars you get a piece of fish that is about an inch and a half thick, and 12-15 inches long, covered in delicious batter, topped with more salt than I could fathom ingesting (oddly enough, it wasn't that salty when we ate it. Not sure how that happened), and of course the fries.
|She was pretty impressed.|
|She was very excited to be holding the baby.|
|And I even held her for a bit. I guess it was okay.|
|The beach right outside their house.|
|We even found greyhounds! Made us miss wax a bit.|
|What great little houses. And everything was so clean.|
|No one goes to church anymore, so they convert the old buildings |
into little shopping centers like this one.
|Will probably own this one day.|
|Everyone takes their dogs with them, and just tie them up |
they go inside. They were all very well behaved dogs.
|Old castle of sorts.|
|The sunny day at the beach. With water WAY too cold to swim in.|
|We ventured out to a neighboring town (alone) to go grocery shopping.|
|And found another dog.|
|Their flat was one of these.|
|Got yelled at for taking this picture. Those Brits get a bit serious at times.|
It was such a good time that we decided to spend another two days there. It was really just great to see our friends after so long, and somewhere so far away. While the rest of the trip was fun, I don't know if it really got better than those few days in Tynemouth.
