At 4:45 am this morning the Summer Solstice was celebrated at Stonehenge, I would love to have been there - maybe some day I will eventually get there. They had wonderful weather for it so I can imagine the view would have been spectacular. This picture is from the Metro newspaper.

On Saturday Sarah and I visited the Doctor Who Exhibition at the Centre for Life in Newcastle. We're both massive Doctor Who fans and had a great time looking at original props and costumes and experiencing the Daleks - it's a 'must see' for any fans. The centre itself is a great place to visit and brings science to life - also has a great little cafe!

One of the most famous songs on Tyneside and now also an annual race which follows the route from Balmbras Public House in Newcastle to Blaydon, just over the water in Gateshead.
