Re: The Seaham Excursion

Don't worry - she feels the same way about me!

She likes me to go out on the motorbike or off somewhere with my camera as she says it gives her a day off as well.

We do love each other really!

Re: The Seaham Excursion

I'm up for the trip unless it's absolutely lashing it down. A bit rainy is ok - good for industrial grimess locations.

It takes about 50 mins from Morpeth, can anyone local post weather conditions at about 09:00?

Re: The Seaham Excursion

You can't go far wrong with the accuracy of the BBC weather forecast. Today's forecast for my area is overcast with rain and lo and behold -the sun is out.... oh!

Re: The Seaham Excursion

The Seaham forecast for Saturday is cloudy all day with sunny intervals between 12:00 to 15:00. Sunday is much the same with sunny intervals between 13:00 to 19:00.

So you can leave the wellies and rubber raincoats at home... according to the BBC friendly local forecasting folks.

Re: The Seaham Excursion

For those keen to do a last minute check on the weather for this beautiful bit of coast, the nearest webcam is up at Sunderland's Roker Beach - it seems to be live at present (night time shot much better as it doesn't show them Maccum lasses - lor rein, howling gail, and poor old sore nado!) http://www.sunderland.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=3382

I will be go equipped for the worst, ready for the worst, but hoping for the best. All I need now is the waterproof housing for an E-30!

I look forward to seeing you all at Noses Point - be there or be dry! And if you're dry, just remember, you're missing a wonderful bit of coastline, a lunar landscape, yellow sulphur ponds, cliffs, rusty ironwork, World War I & II remains, sea tumbled glass or stone, wonderful wild flora and fauna, railway viaducts and, of course, the company of a few mad dogs and Englishfolk.

Regards
Chris

Re: The Seaham Excursion

Would have loved to get across for this but unfortunately and at the same time it is wonderful to have my sister and her family over from Canada

Hope you guys have a great day and organise another soon

Thanks for posting the map Ulfric.
I will be making a pickup in Newcastle and may get to Noses Point a little early, but hope that the weather shines brightly on all who make an appearance!!

Regards
Chris

Re: The Seaham Excursion

A cracking trip out, and a fantastic location. We even avoided the rain for the action on the beach No photies yet, there's a footy match on I believe

Re: The Seaham Excursion

My thanks to those in the forum who turned out and made for a great day out. The hound and I had a fab time. Mollie crashed out as soon as we got home. Looking forward to seeing the end results.
