On a night like this.......

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 16 November 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

A different angle on the illuminations in Sunderland's Roker Park, I've rarely seen the boating lake looking quite so good under moonlight.

I really wish South Tyneside Council could arrange something like this (but bigger and better) in South Shields.
