9 June. Back on the road! Headed back to Newcastle yesterday to reconnect with our route south. Today South Shields, Sunderland, Souter lighthouse and Seaham. Lovely beaches, scenery and sunshine. From there we travelled (as quickly as possible) through Hartlepool and Middlesborough. Oil refineries, collieries, cranes, not very pretty! Then we moved on to Marske, Saltburn-by-the-Sea and settled for the night at a campsite at Runswick Bay. Awning up, wine in hand, Jack asleep and all well.
