Or something like that was being cheered loudly at st James park, where the Springboks were playing Scotland. Ok maybe it was just "Bokka Bokka!" Being chanted by the boisterous South Africa fans. A pretty crazy day as I got a message from Keith about 1130 the night before letting me know he had an extra ticket to the South Africa-Scotland match being played in Newcastle. I let him know yes and then after spending 30 minutes on the phone in ...
... have had a diet of beautiful villages, green fields, rolling hills and some heather (minus snow now) on the higher parts. What a difference sunshine makes.
We are well placed here to explore Hadrian's wall. Today we walked around the impressive Roman ruins at Corbridge and Chester and we did see some of the wall though we had to look hard! We topped off the day with an Aldi grocery shop (!!!) and a walk from our village of Wylam to George Stephenson's cottage. Oh and ...
