After yesterday's heavy rain, hailstones and thunderstorms, I'm out very early this morning, cloudy and breezy, for a thirty-mile local round trip, roads damp but rapidly drying-out. There's hardly a soul around at this hour of course!

Taking-in Hartlepool's 19th century promenade with its fine period houses of late Georgian and Victorian origin, the beach and dunes at the popular local holiday resort of Crimdon Dene, narrow country lanes around Heselden ideal for two-wheel riders, the tidy village of Hutton Henry and then home.

Due to the puddles, I think the LML will need another wash!

Just a few miles up the coast at Crimdon Dene.  A large expanse of beach with sand dunes makes it a popular place to visit for local people.

Thanks Kgborle, and yes the area does have some good roads particularly for smaller scooters in no hurry and good views of both the sea and countryside, both very close to home.
