Beautiful day in South Shields today which wouldn't be complete without a walk along the pier to see the dolly in the lighthouse.
When the pier was being built in the late 19th century, miner James Bertram found the marble doll and stuck it in wet cement of the lighthouse. As you can see it's still there (just about!).
All ready for my hospital appointment tomorrow. Just the usual check-up but hey! Wish me luck!
