Things to do in South Shields Part 1 – Sandhaven to Marsden Kinda Circularish Walk.

You can think of this blog tracing our recent lovely coastal walk as Part One in a Series of Things to do in South Shields which I will be adding to continually in future posts.

I hope that you like it and it and if you do please tell all of your friends.

Cheers, Colin.

Sporting Tales and Highland Adventures

In July we had a fantastic lads trip into the highlands.
