2017-01-13 Tynemouth North Pier

I joined the throngs attracted to the coast by the many warnings in the media to keep away due to the forecast storm surge and generally violent seas.  Friends I met on the way reported that the real lunatics had been surfing in the mouth of the Tyne by the Black Middens.

Timing was important as the high tide was due for 4pm by which time the light would be gone.  As it turned out there was a 15 minute period when the sun came below the cloud layer before setting so far as the pier was concerned.
