Sunderland marina, near South Shields

Sunderland Marina

Just a few miles down the coast from South Shields is Sunderland Marina in the harbour where the River Wear flows into the North Sea, and on my visit there everything seemed to be blue or white…………..apart from the trousers!

Someone once had a dream of creating a marina in South Shields, but that’s what it remained, just a dream. Pity really.

  1. From this viewpoint, it is difficult to see how anyone could manuever their boat around.

    I though of you while listening to this photography podcast concerning photographer’s rights. I thought I would pass this on to you. http://www.tipsfromthetopfloor.com/

  2. Oscar Wilde said that the English and Americans are two people united in all things except language. I once got into some funny confusion about our uses use of the word trousers. We were traveling with a small group in Japan. Our leader was an Englishwoman who had been teaching English in Japan and spoke very good Japanese. I had been careless in packing and brought only one pair of trousers. However, we call them pants. For you, pants refers to something else, ah, closer to the body. I told the guide several times that I managed to bring only one pair of pants and was looking for a store that catered to bigger men (I am about 193 cm tall) to buy another pair of pants. She always gave me such an odd look. Only in the last day or two did we realize that her looks were about the sanity of a traveler in Japan for two weeks who bought no spare underwear.

  3. Super shot. I try these sort of shots in Menton but somehow they don’t turn out like this. Such clarity.
