SEATON SANDS 21 FEB 2018

An after work walk.
It was a lovely late afternoon stroll.

Sun trying to show above the Dunes.

There was a lovely glow from the clouds reflecting on the Sea below.

Heading Back to the Village.

SEATON SANDS 20 FEB 2018.

An after work Beach walk.
It was around 4 pm.
There was a biting wind from the North that was sending loose sand scampering to the Dunes.
It was very chilly.

The Sea was choppy and loud; smashing!


Later realised that my leaving photograph was taken at around the same spot as my arriving photograph.

Most of the finds were found on the walk back from the Gare as the incoming tide washed parts of the beach that had been covered in the loose drifting sands. As the wave action went back out for a while then and only then, the finds were visible.

SEATON SANDS 19 FEB 2018.

THE BOUNDARIES ARE SHROUDED,
EVERYTHING HAS NO END,
ALL THE VIEWS ARE CLOUDED,
WE CAN'T SEE ROUND THE BEND.
I SEE MY HAND IN FRONT OF ME,
AND I CAN SEE THE DOG,
VERY LITTLE ELSE IS VIEWED,
COURTESY OF FOG.

BEACH BUOY.

IT WAS  PUSHED ONSHORE  BUT WAS STLL ALIVE, SO I RETURNED IT TO THE WATER.

SEATON SANDS 17 FEB 2018 AND SOME OTHER STUFF.

Arrived before 8 am.
It was raining.

The tide was well out.

Some grey birds approached in a grey sky so I used a filter to make them visible.

A large float that seemed to be weighted under the water, drifted back out to Sea.

Headed back without doing the river today...

He hates being short changed on a walk.
