Not just… what keeps us busy…

So, its the time of the year when its all going on…  and this means we are running about doing whatever it is that can be done based on the days demands and needs…  surfing. biking. diving. fishing. walking…. and more..

What have we been doing ?

Messing about with boats…

Well, its summer-ish… windows of sunshine, separated by strong wind, lots of rain and heavy skies.

But that wont stop us. Summer is ploughing ahead… BBQ’s, surfing and getting the boats in the water.

Amongst the various things that can go wrong with a boat, the engine is the most important bit, usually…

So this year especially has been a learning curve in terms of buying, selling, running and maintaining outboard marine engines.

Thats not good….

But at the end of that day we have the skills and the tools to prevail… and the flat water of August is right around the corner, bring it on.

 

The bit before Easter

The blossom is appearing all over the trees, daffodils  are springing-up everywhere, and the kids are on holiday from this friday.

Easter is upon us.

The unseasonably nice weather has got everybody moving and thinking about the summer ahead. And that include us too ! :)

We went for a quick shore-dive last night, just off Beadnell Point, and were greeted with STUNNING conditions. Still a bit chilly, but totally worth it.

Check the video below… :)

Another season over…

This time last year we were knee-deep in snow. Well, you were, I managed to make it out of the country on the last flight from Newcastle before they shut the airport due to the weather.

And look at it now – its like Spring – blue skies, sunshine, double figure temperatures… and since im still here, I have been making the most of it with some long walks along the coast.

All these shots are taken with my iPhone, and far from being high-grade, yet still capture the coast in its glorious autumn light… :)

Im off to Indonesia for a month… more at Christmas…

Stunning video of the North East coast.

This video came along at a very handy time. Im rushed off my feet, still, and have been neglecting this blog.. :(

But the following video is an ideal gap-filler, and its a great piece of work, showing-off the various assets and natural beauty the area has.

Promise to write soon.. :)
