"Rain before 7, fine by 11" - held good today, so we decided to park in Hollingside Lane for our shopping trip into Durham.
The sun was shining as we walked through Great High Wood -
and there were signs of spring in the leaf litter -
Walking down from what used to be Mountjoy cottage gives a different view of the cathedral -
A different view across Kingsgate Bridge -
When we walked back along the river bank, there was much activity on the river - a game of kayak basketball under Baths Bridge, and lots of rowing all along the river (with the obligatory view of the cathedral in the background!).
