Cullercoats and Whitley Bay

A little trip up the coast in tribute to Dire Straits. We had Fish & Chips lunch in Cullercoats, then visited what is left of the Spanish City; it’s long gone now (there wasn’t much remaining when we lived in Newcastle in the 1990s) but the city has eventually recognized history and saved the domed building (above) and plans to create more pedestrian areas between the building and the beach …

Also at Spanish City was a curious Mars exhibit; a basically static image projected on the wall, with some tiny movements indicating that long abandoned Mars explorer vehicles are still attempting to complete their exploration tasks ands transmit data to perhaps a long dead Earth. Luckily, the exhibit was free!
