Manoocher Visits

Manoocher and James at Bolam Lake
With the Newcastle summer subsiding Manoocher hopped in his car and drove up to enjoy the surrounding countryside with me in the rain. Above is a picture of us enjoying the rain at Bolam Lake in Northumberland, below is a picture of Manoocher enjoying the rain at the Penshaw monument near Sunderland.

The Penshaw Monument was built in 1844 anddesigned by John and Benjamin Green, that’s all I know about it and I found that out from the BBC local website, there was no information about it at the actual site.More photos of our two small excursions can be found here.
