Following on from my last post, I go to the Races in Newcastle upon Tyne every year, usually Northumberland Plate Day but this year Ladies Day for a change. And each year I wonder why I go, I suppose the free tickets help but really it is not my scene at all. I did manage to take some photographs this year, usually I never seem to get around to it. Taken with my compact Ixus camera instead of my usual SLR, I also forgot to put the larger memory card in, so I only managed a few shots. We stayed for a couple of hours and then went on to a restaurant in nearby Jesmond before heading into town for some cocktails.
