Sandhaven Beach, South Shields
There was a raw biting wind blowing from the North-West which whipped the spray above the top of the rolling waves, but it was not enough to deter hardy folks from enjoying the bracing weather, walking the dog, and just enjoying the view.
In the background the ruined remains of Tynemouth Priory and Castle.
