Game of bowls Readhead Park, South Shields

Bowling in the park

Is this a sign that summer is on it’s way at last?

A dry afternoon, we’ve had too much rain lately, found a number of men enjoying a game of bowls in the Readhead Park, South Shields. When I was there I noticed a few younger people playing this game, which was once described as an “old man’s sport”. Sir Francis Drake won’t have been too happy!

  1. Golly gee. That looks nice. It must be as flat as a pancake. I never saw the game played outside. I used to set pins inside when I was a kid. I still got some scars on my shins where the pins flew up and hit me. Guess St Peter will take care of them for me.

    A nice photograph. A bit chilly perhaps but still nice.
