More from Newcastle...


This is the Shimna River in Newcastle where it meets the sea and there are various activities to enjoy.
Overcast but dry, though the skies were ominous.
Notice the geese along the fence?

The paddleboat swans are always popular.


The geese seemed to be enjoying the fun as much as their human counterparts! This one posed for me!


Thankful to have my family home safe after trips away and thankful for beautiful weather this past week.
Hope you are having a great week too!

Linking with Michelle's Thankful Thursday HERE

And Gosia's Good Fences HERE

  1. Very nice views, i know i wouldn't mind a ride in such a paddle boat. The goose looks very intent on something, for some reason, they always do.
