Only Crazy People Attempt to Search for the Beach at Night

Why is it that whenever the three of us are together, we end up doing crazy stuff? Lol... Like rowing in the cold for example, or the two of them teman-ing me for the LGBT pub crawl. That really meant a lot guys :) Thank you!

Anyway, this time around, it involved CAMPUS hoodies, a steep, almost pitch black staircase, getting lost, and trying to hold in a full bladder. I'm not gonna get into the details but we somehow ended up at CAMPUS before dinner to get our free (terms and conditions apply) hoodies.

Taking the colder more scenic route along the river, we soon came to the bottom of that bridge you see in the picture and the only way to get back to the main road was this extremely dark and steep stairs where we were only able to see 4 steps ahead and looked as if it just came out of a horror movie! Y'know, the kind that you'd think "Why is the hero/heroine so stupid as to walk there as something is so obviously going to happen". But it was either that or walk all the way back to where we originally were. I kept praying and praying that all would be fine lol. "...Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me..." Psalm 23:4. Thank you Lord!

The view

The next plan was to explore the beach in Seaburn as we still had our Metro tickets from rowing in the afternoon. First thing we saw worth photographing was Fulwell Mill. After walking some distance and not seeing any beaches, we stopped to ask some people who happened to be leaving a nearby restaurant. Turned out that we were walking in the opposite direction! :( The lady pointed a road further up from where we had came from and told us that the beach was about a mile's walk from there. A whole mile? In the dark? On a full bladder and an empty stomach? Make that an extremely empty stomach as we had used up lots of energy for rowing. That's when we decided we'd come back another day. Probably when we have to take the Metro for rowing again.

Fulwell Mill

After a satisfying dinner, the three of us huddled into Wk's room to camwhore with our newly acquired hoodies! ^____^

Faces censored as usual
