Seaburn, one of the best areas of Sunderland. My girlfriend used to work at the large Morrisonís supermarket which is there and itís where I shop every Saturday. Great beach which often gets underestimated. Also when I was in the police I was based at Southwick Station and the Roker and Seaburn areas were my beat areas so I know the place very well indeed. Small world.
Itís the Sunderland Air Show next weekend and itís at Roker and Seaburn. Around a million people were there last year! You will probably be able to see parts of it on You Tube. I hope the rain keeps off as we have had an unusual amount of bad weather here over the last three months and the summer is a washout so far, but thatís the UK.
Can I ask you why you chose Canada as a place to live? Iím 47 yrs and its make or break time for me with regard to whether I make some type of move abroad. I do have my doubts as to if its going to be worth all the upheaval but I have the nagging thought that if I donít then it will be a case of ďwhat ifĒ later down the line.
