Not the best weather...
...for a trip to the seaside, with strong winds and a high probability of rain.
But we ended up having a couple of hours in Saltburn-by-the-sea, before one of us made his way to Redcar Races.
The sun emerged for long enough to get some shots of this surfer from the famous pier (see extra), before heading into a nearby restaurant for some excellent fish and chips (from where the extra was photographed).
The afternoon found me wandering around a less-then-exciting Redcar town centre, waiting for the racing fan.
