And was the holy Lamb of God,
On Englands pleasant pastures seen!

Southbound Again

Boy's bound to keep moving,
Seems like the boy is bound to roam
- Southbound again, Dire Straits

These are some pictures I took on my way south from Edinburgh, moving through the North with its shifting scenery of North Sea fishing coves, the heavily industrialised Tyneside and the placid, ever-quiet Yorkshire. It was a beautiful day and I was constantly reminded of the Dire Straits song Southbound again from their debut album, humming it in my mind as I divided my concentration between the changing landscape and the word-search magazine I had brought with me.

I've seen Tweed's silver streams,
Glitt'ring in the sunny beams,
- Flowers of the Forest, Alison Cockburn

I may not stay, I'm bound for leaving,
I'm bound to ramble and to roam
-Fare Thee Well Northumberland, Mark Knopfler

Every single time I roll across the rolling River Tyne
I get the same old feeling
Every time I'm moving down the line
-Southbound again, Dire Straits

 Southbound again

"El-ahrairah, your people cannot rule the world, for I will not have it so. All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies, and whenever they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner, prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks and your people shall never be destroyed."
- Watership Down, Richard Adams

For those who don't take the reference (or notice the rabbit):
