SKODA & ..... SEAHAM

BACK IN 1973 WHEN SKODAS WERE SKODAS

AND VW WAS VW, MY FATHER BOUGHT HIS ONE AND ONLY EVER NEW CAR.

A SKODA 100MB...I THINK THE PRICE WAS £825.

THE COLOUR WAS HARVEST GOLD (ORANGE).

WE WENT OUT ONE SUMMER'S NIGHT FOR A DRIVE AND ENDED UP AT SEAHAM.

THIS WAS MY FIRST VISIT TO SEAHAM.

WE HAD A LOOK AROUND THE DOCK AREA AND FOUND THE PAPERS BELOW

ON THE FLOOR NEXT TO THE SITE OF AN EARLIER BONFIRE.

"KEEP THEM, THEY'RE OLD" DAD SAID.

I DID AND HAVE.

NOSE'S POINT AND SEAHAM HALL BEACH

I WAS GIVEN THE CHANCE TO HEAD FOR SEAHAM


GONE.........................


I DECIDED TO HAVE A BETTER LOOK AT THE BEACH AT NOSE'S POINT, SEAHAM.


IT HAD BEEN RAINING ALL DAY LONG AT THE HOME PORT


AND IT WAS STILL RAINING WHEN I SET OFF FOR SEAHAM.



THE BEACH IS REALLY ODD .


A MIXTURE OF PAST DUMPING


BROWN SAND,GRAVEL PEBBLES AND ROCKS.


THE WAY THE DIFFERENT SIZE STONES ETC WERE SCATTERED


AROUND, LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THE ROUGH SEAS THAT CAN BE EXPERIENCED AT SEAHAM HAD A LOT TO DO WITH IT?















THERE ARE SOME NICE CLIFFS.









































I WONDER HOW LONG THIS STACK WILL REMAIN STANDING AFTER A RECENT ROCKFALL?















BELOW SOME WW2 BEACH DEFENCES.










BELOW ...THE SCENE AT SEAHAM HALL BEACH.


THE TIDE WAS HIGH AND AS USUAL A T SEAHAM WAS TRYING TO CATCH YOU OUT TO GIVE YOU A GOOD SOAKING.


NOT LONG AFTER THIS PHOTOGRAPH WAS TAKEN


THE RAIN CAME... AND I WENT



















































NOT MUCH TO WRITE HOME ABOUT...THE FINDS

Seaham ...Yes AGAIN!

On Sunday 29th of May 2011






a visit was made to Seaham Car Boot Sale.






I am not big lover of Car Boot Sales,but as you know I love Seaham






and it's beaches.






Below is the view from the edge of the Car Boot field.The Beach proved to be a bit of a Sun trap and was sheltered from the very strong wind
by the high cliff side.


Now that's what i call putting your feet up.













There were some people sea glass hunting... bent double.


I sometimes like to find an area like below


and go the sit & scrape route.















Sorry photograph a bit blurry
























A nice Green Piece in Situ... almost begging to be collected.
