While in Sunderland, we all bought a day pass and traveled the length and breadth of the town eventually making our way to the beach, it was a pretty murky day, but in truth not too different from the average summers day in Galway. So I happily snapped away!
The water was pretty turbulent on the day!
I had a near miss taking the shot above! I walked down steps towards the turbulent waters edge, as the tide came rolling in wave after wave I was looking through the camera, concentrating on getting the perfect shot. Unbeknownst to me while kneeling down a few young teenage kids were sneaking up behind me planning to either push me in or simply shout at me and give me a fright, either way I was likely to end up in the water. I only found out afterwards that Neen shouted at them warning them off in no uncertain terms...
English Beach Side Fish and Chip Shop! Funnily enough, participants of the Reenactment I blogged about earlier were gathered at the beach that day, wonderful site watching a burly bearded soldier, in full 17th century outfit, rummaging hungrily through his coin purse to buy a portion of Fish and Chips!
