Sunderland Air Show

Little Haven

I had a lovely afternoon sailing on DFDS Princess Seaways along the coast to Sunderland to watch the Air Show.

John, my sister and I enjoyed  a lovely lunch on board and a leisurely cruise along the coastline between South Shields and Seaburn. There must have been a bit of a swell because we felt it on deck and the Captain announced there was bad weather out in the North Sea. So I'm glad we weren't sailing to Amsterdam this trip! 

We had a good view point of the coastline from out on deck and the 
air displays were fantastic. We got a bit blown about by the wind but 
enjoyed it non the less, so much so we are looking forward to doing the same next year. 


Suprisingly, I did manage to get some 
photos with my little camera. I hope 
you like them.
The weather stayed good but because of a tight time schedule the ship had to be back in port for 3pm so we missed the Battle of Britain fly past and the Red Arrows. 

We did catch a glimpse of the Red Arrows when we docked at North Shields.

I just had to get some nice scenic photos too. These are of South Shields and the Tyne.

Thanks for sharing my day with me.
