Realizing my holiday would soon be coming to an end, I decided I had one final chance to get far out of town. I decided I would take the train 3 hours up to Newcastle, where Britain sent their most criminally insane convicts. After I got there I found my hotel conveniently located 50 meters from the beach and immediately went to see what it looked like before the sun set.

I then walked inland toward Darby Street where I was told I'd be able to find a place to eat and have a beer. The place I found was called 5 Sawyers, which seamed to be primarily a tapas bar. The neatest thing about this place was the lighting, it was very non-directional with colors chosen to bring out the surroundings of each light. The effect created by the lighting design here was an ambient glow of comfort. I chose the duck liver with pickled onions for my dinner. It had a strange green topping over the liver, but underneath was a wonderfully livery treat.
