I was intending to head to St Mary's Island near Whitley Bay, however a detour via the Fish Quay in North Shields revealed that all the work had been completed on the quayside and you now had an unobstructed view down the river.
It was so peaceful down there despite the hustle and bustle of the fishermen getting ready to set off out into the pitch black and out to sea.
Here is a selection of images I captured just after 5am this morning on the banks of The River Tyne in North Shields, Tyne & Wear.
