Having travelled quite a bit over the break, today's journey was the shortest and we were in high spirits as we started seeing our first signs to Newcastle.
Whenever we have a hire car and find ourselves on the A1 I can't help but ask if I'll be getting a little look at the Angel of the North. I love the Angel, it gives me goose bumps every time I see it. My first ever journey up to Newcastle to see Simon was by coach and we drove straight past the Angel and I was in complete awe at how huge and magnificent it looked against the landscape.
Knowing how much I love her Simon took me on a little detour on the way home so I could see her in all her glory as the sun was beginning to set.
I'll be doing a bit more of a Christmassy post in a few days but for now I leave you with some photos I took of the Angel this evening.
