After the exhilarating film, we caught a snack downstairs before mooching around the shops for bits and pieces. We got back to the house to see mum & dad briefly, before heading back in to town again. This time for dinner with friends.
After a drink in Bacchus, we ate at Dabbawal, a new Indian restaurant that was pretty good. (It's mantra is 'street food' but I couldn't see a great deal of that - it seems they're simply playing on the buzz word(s) of the moment).

Following dinner we had a couple more drinks in Alvinos and Popolo before heading home. The following morning Kel and I went in to Tynemouth for a walk along the beach, then on to Tynemouth Market.
Shortly after we were picked up by mum & dad and driven to lunch, where we were meeting Ruth, Andy & Jude and Jean & Nige at the Crab & Lobster in Asenby.

We had a fantastic lunch, in wonderful surroundings - a ceiling laden with hanging puppets and fishing net and a gent's loo with hanging brassieres and pictures of Marylin Monroe! Music too:
We had a brief walk around the grounds afterwards, before heading our separate ways. Kel and I were dropped off at the train station to make our way home. A fantastic weekend had.
