THE colourful coasts of Morocco and Madeira beckoned for a Hartlepool couple with a real pride in their home town.
Ken and Marlene Pearson, both 74, are pictured during their cruise which took in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, La Palma, Madeira, Lanzarote and Morocco.
Ken and Marlene, from Bamburgh Court in Hartlepool, stopped off at Agadir in Morocco to be photographed with their Proud To Be A Poolie poster. They are pictured with local man Hassan and his camel.
Our thanks go to Ken and Marlene for helping to spread the word about Hartlepool.
