Thursday the 7th Jake and I headed into Newcastle town center for a date day! Up sharp, we got the bus (I miss my car) into town and headed straight for The Hancock Museum.
After all my years of living in and around Newcastle combined with my interest for museums, its a shame I've never been before now. But to tell the truth I wasn't really aware it existed.
Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed our look around - despite it being half term and filled with children!
Here are some of the many photos we took.
|I wasn't quite sure what to think about real stuffed animals at first, but this display is stunning!|
|Me having lots of fun exploring!|
I very much like a gift shop but refrained from spending all our money. I did buy the cutest little white seal pup soft toy purely as I had a practically identical one as a child from Edinburgh Zoo and we got a keepsake penny in one of those machines that flatten the coin when you turn the wheel - it says 'Julius Geordius' on it, I found that funny!
|I had a few extra photos I wanted to add so here is my very first attempt at a GIF!|
1. Spot the odd one out..! haha
2. Apparently the Swastika symbolized good luck to the Romans.
3. Jake guarding the guards.
4. A pretty enamel 'S' that I wanted for my Mammy.
5. I wish house keys were still like this, no losing them easily.
6. I dunno how artifacts stay in such amazing condition!
7. A Mummy.
We rounded off the day splitting a pizza at Pizza Hut followed by warm chocolate cookie dough with ice cream and a bus journey back to Blyth!
Always a lovely day out when I'm with my man <3
