Sea air, fish and a cuppa.

Where the River Tyne meets the North Sea.
 We often visit North Shields for a day out
to visit the Fish Quay .
Today I am sharing a cuppa with friends over at

and the brew that was very welcome on our return home.

In the distance on the left is the headland at  Tynemouth.

It was a dull day, but still a few folk were enjoying the sands.

This was looking back towards North Shields.

Now to the buy some fish for tea, just around the corner from the Smokehouse.

What to buy????

Back home , with the brew close to hand it was time to consult the books for ideas,
we had bought Sea Bream.
A treat and not something I usually buy, like cod or haddock.

You have my word it was delicious,
 but taking a photo when it was shouting out, ''eat me'',
was the last thing on my mind at the time.

Thank you for calling in today you are most welcome.
Happy Tea day everyone.

My post for Try it on Tuesdays will be posted soon.


  1. Hmm. I have never heard nor had sea bream. But fish is so yummy I bet it was good. I love seeing photos of different places. Too bad it was such an overcast day, but still, a day by the sea is always good, Gray skies or not. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  2. Looks good Yvonune. Hope to visit there some day

    Love Chrissie xx

  3. Lovely photos even without the sun. It would be nice to have a place to go buy fresh fish like that. Love your cute mug too!

  4. Lovely photos Yvonne, glad you enjoyed your fish tea.

  5. My mouth is watering just thinking of that fresh fish, yummy! Looks like a lovely place to visit. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie and Susi

  6. that is a perfect outing in my books- by the sea, the boats, and then to buy some fish for dinner:) I must look up your choice of sea bream though because I am not familiar with it. I'll take your word for it that it was delicious:) Happy T day!

  7. Looks like a great day out. It doesn't matter if it is overcast a little. The sea air, the beach and fish and chips ...what could be better. Lovely photos tfs.
    Hugs Flo xx

  8. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the day, I love being by the sea and the beach looks very inviting! The Smokehouse looks like a great place to buy fresh fish and I bet your sea bream was scrumptious :-). Mmm, I'm feeling hungry now. Wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  9. Thanks for greetings from your journey, Yvonne. Sure interesting place.
    Hugs ❤

  10. I have never heard of sea bream, the River Tyne, or North Shields. Thankfully, I HAVE heard of the North Sea! So I learned a great deal today, which always makes me happy. Thanks for sharing this and for the lovely photos of the area, including the Smokehouse and Tynemouth.

    Of course, I love how you included the photo of the cooked sea bream and your tea cup and tea pot with us for T this Tuesday. So glad it tasted good.

  11. sounds like a perfect day out... i envy you for being so Close to the sea! and of course i´d be happy to buy fish totally fresh!
    happy t-day!

  12. I have heard of sea bream but never had any.... must have read it in a book maybe?? Such lovely pictures you shared MeggyMay and it looks like a wonderful day out and about... We don't eat fish often... not near as often as we should... So glad to see you this Tday! Hugs! deb

  13. That's a fish I've never heard of before. I'm always up for something new though.

  14. I have not heard of sea bream either...........but I am a fish eater, so I'm sure it tasted good if you couldn't find time to take a photo....LOL! I usually do the same thing!
    Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog.
    Happy T-day

  15. Oh sea bream, very posh. I love it. I have had it on a few occasions and I can imagine you forgot to take a photo.
    Looks like you had a wonderful day out in spite of the dullness (but that's normal isn't it).
    Happy T-day,
    and a good week ahead,

  16. I've never had sea bream, and I can't recall ever seeing it in the grocery or on a menu. I think maybe I need to move closer to the coast :) Happy T Tuesday!

  17. I loved seeing these photos - the sky over the North Sea has lovely light! Great seeing the fish and a good choice I think! Hugs, Chrisx

  18. Beautiful photos and nothing beats fresh fish ♥

  19. Love your photos.I have never heard nor had sea bream but it must be good. Fish is always good.
