Just a few weeks after we’d returned from our rather epic road trip to the southwestern desert, we embarked on a much more British adventure up to the North-East to visit Kas’s family.

I think there was the motive that Kas needed to go and spend time with her sister planning stuff for her wedding, which was (as is always the case in Britain) on the very demanding schedule of being only a year away. This meant Kas spent a big chunk of the weekend looking at or trying on dresses, while I spent much of it driving around taking photos of things.

While we were there we had an evening taking photos on the beach at Whitburn, followed by a Saturday where I dropped Kas off in Newcastle and then drove back to Sunderland to take a few more photos, then back past the Angel of the North and into central Newcastle again to fetch Kas back.

On the Sunday morning Kas and I went down to the beach in Whitburn again to take a few photos on what turned out to be a beautiful autumn morning.
