I have mentioned the Leas a few times but never really explained.The Leas is basically a long long stretch of open air and grass which tops the cliffs parrell with the seafront and stretches along the Shields coast line.
"I remember this view,
as a child and an adult too.
Do you remember, it was oh so long ago, we played on The Leas with footballs and kites,
we walked forever whether at morning or during summer nights.
The wind blew through my hair as we gazed at the ships out there,
and you dreamed of a life at sea and building a life we could share."
