SEATON SANDS 28-07-16.

An evening walk, a calm dull night after the heat of last week. There was a couple of metal detectorists on the beach tonight; they annoying me I'm afraid. My take on it has always been if you are meant to  find it , then it will be there to see. Then again each to his own I suppose. There is enough crap in the world and enough people to cause you pain.
So be an Island; your Island  and let others do the same; but their same not your same.

The sea glass finds from an ever changing Seaton Carew Beach. Much sand movement at the moment even though the sea has been quite calm.

Sea Pottery and a clay pipe piece.

Be Happy,

A lovely night.

SEATON REACH, SEATON CAREW, HARTLEPOOL 26 JULY 2016. Beach No. 27 out of a Target of 52 for the year.

It wasn't meant to be a beach visit as such, it started out as a Prom walk with Daughter, Grandson, two dogs and a Frisbee.
It's funny how you can live somewhere for years and not notice things. I passed this sign which lies  South of the Staincliffe Hotel and realised I had another beach to add to my target of 52 for the year. My criteria was, if it had a different name then that counted as a different beach. Where possible I have taken a picture of the information board at each beach , with its code number.

We left the prom to claim the beach; this was fine as dogs are allowed on this part of the beach all year round. This part of the beaches of Seaton Carew and surrounding area is completely covered by the high tide, but as you can see the tide was well out.
I have never found anything  to add to my finds collection from this Beach. The view above is looking South, The River Tees and Cleveland Hills in the distance.

The view North toward's Hartlepool Headland.

As i write this the rain is falling onto the windows in the roof.
It's so relaxing,

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL 25-07-16.

IT WAS  ALMOST HIGH TIDE ON A VERY CALM NIGHT. THE  NEWLY FORMED SANDBANK WAS STILL VISIBLE; FORMING A BIT OF A LAGOON EFFECT BEHIND IT.

MY SEARCH AREA FOR TONIGHT WAS THE NARROW STRIP OF WET SAND AS THE TIDE PEAKED AND FELL.

A FLOCK OF CORMORANT? HEAD SOUTH WEST AND OVER THE SAND DUNES.

NOT MANY FINDS TONIGHT DUE TO THE TIDE AND CALM WEATHER.
I DIDN'T FIND MUCH GLASS OR POTTERY BUT IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THAT...
IT'S ALSO ABOUT FINDING YOURSELF AND REALISING A FEW THINGS.
B AND Q
BEACH AND QUIET.

SEAHAM HALL BEACH, SEAHAM 23-07-16

This came the other  day.
A first edition.
I remember these books from when I was a child.
I have decided to try and increase my knowledge of the sea.
I may actually get around to reading it.

For the second day running ... it was Seaham Hall Beach.
Not a glass hunt visit, the youngsters want to go rock pooling and collect stones!

I collected some of my own and made a face.
I last did this 8 years ago at Point of Ayre in the Isle of Man ; lots of nice flat stones there.

I found this; thought to be a drop stone, used in spinning.
I may be wrong?

SEAHAM HALL BEACH, SEAHAM. 22-07-16.

We had came to Seaham for a picnic up on the grassed area of Seaham Hall Beach Car Park.

After the Picnic we came down to the Beach for a Glass hunt and thanks to Sunderland Airshow we had WW2 warplanes and the Red Arrows for company

My best bits.

The rest.


My eldest Daughter's finds.

WELL DONE.

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL 21-07-16.

A stepped sand bank appeared, about 600mm high.
The shifting sands are very odd of late.

And.... on that sand bank was a sea alley.

It was a really HOT day but no refreshing breeze from the sea tonight.

The beach gave up another little Gem.

More beach types looking for the missing sea breeze.

On the way back ... another 5 stones piece.

And to finish a Seal Hagstone.

SEATON SANDS 19-07-16

IT HAD BEEN THE WARMEST DAY OF THE YEAR.
MY ELDEST DAUGHTER AND I HEADED FOR THE BEACH AROUND 8-30 P.M.
THE CAR PARK WAS STILL PACKED AND SWIMMERS AND PADDLERS WERE IN THE SEA.
A MICRO LIGHT BUZZED OVERHEAD.

THE TIDE WAS LOW AND THE SUN FOLLOWED SUIT.
