Penshaw Monument near Sunderland

Joyce, Heather and Chris at the Penshaw Monument near Sunderland

Chris and Joyce on the coastal walk near Seaham

July 11

Up early, Gary and I had breakfast after Joyce and Chris who had already eaten. After breakfast, Chris drove us to Penshaw Monument where we went for a walk up to the monument, and then on to Silksworth Hill for a short walk before picking up some groceries for lunch. We returned to their place for lunch.

After lunch, we watched a bit of the women's final from Wimbledon and recorded the rest while we went out again for a longer walk at Seaham area, up Hawthorn Dene and along a coastal footpath. It was a good long walk. On our return, we stopped in Seaham to view a new WW I memorial sculpture that had been placed near the seafront. The statue was called "Tommy", and was formed of welded metal. It was extremely sympathetic.

Back home we watched the end of the tennis, then walked down the road to the Ashbrooke Sports facility where we ate dinner in the Italian restaurant in the clubhouse.
