Newcastle & Tumbleweed

Yesterday evening I commented:

It's as if the shutters will be going up across Newcastle tomorrow and the tumbleweed will be blowing across the streets by 1st September!

That was pretty much the case. We turned up this morning at the sea front Tropicana water pool - all the publicity and signs point to it opening at 11am during July and August (and June weekends).

Yet when we arrived at 11am, there was a bit of paper stuck to the open gate saying that it would only open to the public at 1pm on Tue 30th and Wed 31st. All summer to advertise one set of hours, and then change their mind at the last minute. Tourist friendly or what?

Even the swans were chained up.
