I went for a ramble on an overcast morning, determined to find a sandy Sunderland beach. After crossing the Wear, skirting the National Glass Center, and cutting through the yacht club, I arrived at my destination!

An order of chips from a beachfront shop, complete with salt and vinegar, made an appropriate lunch.

I wandered back through the city, popping into thrift stores and avoiding the off-again, on-again drizzle. Altogether, my ramble brought me home 5 hours after setting out – a proper walk indeed!
