Over on the Universe blog I’ve recently done a post on Tynemouth Market. Co-incidentally I went again today as I’d run out of olive spread from a lady who’s husband lives in Greece growing olive trees and making the spread, as well as refining olive oil and assorted other thingys, while she’s over here with the kids in school and she’s selling their produce. I love the spread on my toast for breakfast, it’s well lush! (Damn you Brexit if that goes down the pan! 🙂 ) Sophie is away seeing her man in Spain, so Phil came with me, and managed to spend a heap of cash as he found the original cap badges and a medal he needed for a project he’s doing about his Mum and Dad when they were in WW2. I spent a heap of cash on olive spread, sweet chili and irn bru sausages, some
not very healthy pasties for tea, a bear, 2 codd bottles (more of them in the week) and a pair of awesome steampunk boots which I will also be featuring here one day next week. Betcha can’t wait.
Of course I took my camera, but this time with my B&W head on, so here are a few from my outing.
These appealed to my inner eco~warrior, but they seemed a bit flimsy, and what happens when it rains?
This is Pete, he makes pease pudding with different flavours, and Phil ended up buying 3 pots! Wish I’d got the sign behind him in the shot, which read, Give Pease a Chance.🙄🤣
I liked the sound of these!
Someone has been enterprising..
The market is held in Tynemouth metro station, which is quite beautiful, and has a fab bridge to go from one side of it to the other
Of course I had to click these, they are decorative rather than working, according the vendor, but he wasn’t sure!
One of these might have come home with me 🙂 and may be on the bear shelf.
It was a lovely sunny day, and being under the roof kept us sheltered from the wind.
It was a good day for finding light and shade
That one was going to be shot of the day, but I chose this next one because the writing on them made me laugh. Click to embiggen it and have a giggle.
One last shot, and this just could NOT be anything but colour!
