SEATON SANDS AND NORTH GARE BEACH 22 03 17.

A late afternoon walk on Seaton Sands and on to North Gare Beach. Both Beaches were deserted.
The wind was strong and cold and the drizzle eventually turned to rain.

A bonnie stone, Looking a little like a piece of Salmon?

After a short mooch over on North Gare Beach at the mouth of The River Tees it was back to Hartlepool Bay

Tonight's finds... nothing flash really.

SEATON SANDS 20-03-17.

It was a round 5-30pm.
It was a windy day and the dry dune sand had stuck like glue to the wet Beach sand, making it harder to locate finds.

The view back to Seaton Carew on the first day of spring.

The finds.
A Fossil, Sea Pottery and Sea Glass, the picture does not do the large Blue piece justice... I would call it Aqua blue.

SEATON SANDS AND ONTO NORTH GARE BEACH 19-03-17.

I had been to work; grabbed a cup of tea.
I drove the short distance to the Beach and parked next to the Crazy Bunny Lady....
Bishop Brennan would not be Happy
(Father Ted.)
PEACE LOVE RABBITS

Thankfully the tide was out a fair  amount so it meant  could most probably  have a mooch down at the North Gare.

A Pot screw-thread bottle top...
Thanks to North Gare.

He was his usual unimpressed self, taking a nap on shingle!
The blocks in the background are World War Two defences.

The afternoon was grand so we headed on over to North Gare Beach. Some shingle has appeared recently, beyond the grey rocks in the distance.
Shingle can mean finds!

Blue and White Sea Alley.. (Marble)

Part of my #2minutebeachclean

A lovely Green Sea Alley.... liked a little like a
Gooseberry.

He had a rest in the rippled sand ..
He'll remember this.

The late afternoon Sun shone on the Rolling Sea.

If Only!

Today's finds.
Pleased.

WORK, POOLS AND SEATON CAREW 18-03-17.

It had been a long day with an earlier than usual start at work meaning the alarm was set for 4-40 am.
After work it was straight to watch Pools aka Hartlepool United.
We lost 0-2 today, which always gets me down.
After the match I grabbed the dog and hit the Beach.
It had rained earlier in the Day , but at the time of the Beach visit it was a mild wind taking centre stage.

It seems as though I have been turning up at the Beach at high tide a lot lately.

As usual I headed South first.

I was pleased to see that the Sea had left some shingle banks to explore.

The clouds gathered and the rain came later.

A nice pottery piece with a Bridge?

And this his him in his *Oh No Not Another Photo Stop.*
position.

A few nice finds
Fossil
Glass
Pot... one with hole
And a strange small ball
it is not very heavy but feels a little like a house brick to touch.

NEWBURN BRIDGE, SEATON CAREW. 17 03 17

Scene at Newburn Bridge, Seaton Carew back in Nov. 1901when my Great Grandfather tied a rope around his waist and went into the water to help save the Crew of the Trio.

Poor photograph of brilliant Sea Gallantry Medal that William was given.

The view from `NEWBURN BRIDGE

SEATON CAREW 16-03-17.

It was 6pm again when we hit the Beach.
It was Chilly, my mate had his coat on.

Lots of shingle and waves trying to catch you out, shame the light was fading.

The pieces I kept tonight.

SEATON SANDS , SEATON CAREW, HARTLEPOOL 15 MARCH 2017

The Seaton Carew Clock Tower shows that it was 6pm.
The distant village Church Bells rang six times as I set off on a Beach walk.

This chap was on the strand line.
It was upside down and looked dead, but I was drawn to it.
One touch and it sparked into self defence mode.
I carried to where I judged it would be safe and settled him into a home to wait safely for the tide to come back and re claim him and hopefully set him off on a long adventure.

The way back in the fading light was spoilt by a drifting black cloud of smoke coming across the Dunes from a fire to the East.

There were loads of shingle clusters to search but the light had almost gone!

I left quite a bit again but did pick up these.
Not sure what the white object is?
I have found one similar a while back but it had glass or a lens in the circular opening.
