A ten stop at Seaham

I spent the whole of Saturday afternoon on the beach at Seaham. I learned all about Seaham Sea Glass and spent a good hour or more collecting bits from the beach. A LOT of time was also spent taking some long exposures of the groynes jutting out into the sea.

A couple of car park sightings

A couple of nice looking motors from the car park at Croft. Apparently it is a MRS200 which is a Toyota MR2 based replica. Looked immaculate.

Mucky MG Metro

The 6R4 of Rob Gibson looked in need of a little spit and elbow grease by the end of the day.

A handful more from Croft

Rallycross GP Croft

The second year in a row I had gone to watch the Rallycross at Croft. Usually good racing, and it provides a little something different to most racing at the circuit. The weather was relatively kind, but I was still unenthused by my shots at Croft. Definitely something to improve on next year.

Swaledale Sheep

No trip into the Dales would be complete without seeing a couple of bemused looking sheep.

Welcome back to Yorkshire

An Alpaca and a traditional Dales view......go figure?

Ffestinog Steam Gala

The 150th Anniversary of the Ffestinog line coincided with my last weekend in North Wales, so I made the effort to watch a few of the vintage trains on the tracks.

A walk up Snowdon

I talked myself into walking up Snowdon, despite the strong winds. In hindsight, it may have been a better idea to leave the camera at home, as there was zero visibility for most of the climb, and the camera barely made it out of the bag. I felt bad taking no shots at all, so snapped a few on the lower sections, as the wind and cloud made for no opportunities higher up.
