SATURDAY 12 DECEMBER,2009 SEATON CAREW & BLUE LAGOON.

Arrived old fairground car park around 7 am the above photo showing how dark it still was.
It was such and calm and mild morning for the time of year....stunning.
The glow from the threatened steel works lit the sky.

The strip of sand dune mentioned in an earlier blog was accessible,but i noticed some form of fencing at the end of the strip.


On closer inspection each post had a don't disturb notice...presumably for either nesting birds or maybe seals...i didn't go to check.



The photograph above seems to show a giant waving from the steelworks...maybe for help?





I passed a "Proper" photographer with tripod set waiting for the sun to show around this point.

SEATON CAREW & BLUE LAGOON SUNDAY 29 NOV 2009

It was very wet & very windy.I maybe should have had a tripod when i took photographs.
The one above look a little like Christmas Trees.(Better when viewed larger.


This time the wind wobble created matchstickmen maybe working at the steelworks across the river?










The strong wind blew straight in from the sea...
It was wet and ....Bracing.

Seaton Carew,Blue Lagoon & Third beach 15 November 2009

Arrived Old Fairground Car Park 7-16 am

2 cars

3 people

3 dogs

A fresh breeze from the South,cooler and not as strong as yesterday.
As I crossed over the North Gare the wind on the Blue Lagoon side was stronger and filled with the smell of chemicals from the other side of the River
















The tide was very low, it made me realise the the sand dunes that I had always thought where at the other side of the river, where reachable on foot.
The photograph below was taken from a very narrow strip of sand dune.(That I had thought was across the River!)
The Blue Lagoon Beach is on the Left and the third beach ...to the River is on the right.




Below is a view from the narrow sand dune looking up the river .










Below is a view across the third beach to the river










Below is a sign spotted in the Sand dunes ..i was nowhere near the SOS area (Honest)
it must have blow off.






Below is a man I spotted fishing on the way back along Seaton Beach...now that's what I call a float!

It was a Grey start to the day, with a strong wind from the South.
I could see 7 people and 3 dogs on the beach
When we crossed the North Gare,Bonnie found a ball, but wasn't too impressed when i threw it.

The strong wind was blowing all of the dry sand North.
