HIYA...JUST LOGGED TO USE MY BLOG TO FIND THE THE TIDE TIMES AND WEATHER REPORT VIA THE BBC LINK.
IT INFORMS ME ...
LOW TIDE 10 58 AM
AT 0-5M
MAX TEMP 5
MIN TEMP 1
VISIBILITY GOOD.
MY "BIG" CAMERA HAS BEEN TAKING A POUNDING WITH STRONG WINDS AND SAND DAMAGE, SO THOUGHT I WOULD CHECK THE REPORT.
YESTERDAY'S PHOTOGRAPHS WERE TAKEN WITH MY "LITTLE" CAMERA ...A FUJIFILM FINEPIX A 805. IT IS SMALL AND EASILY FITS INTO A TOP POCKET OUT, OF THE WAY OF ANY ADVERSE WEATHER
HAVE A NICE SUNDAY.
THE BEACH IS CALLING.

SEATON CAREW & BLUE LAGOON 19 FEB 2011

ARRIVED AT SEATON CAREW BEACH AROUND 7 AM
IT WAS AROUND 3 DEGREES IN TEMPERATURE.
IT WAS COLD AND WET.

LOTS OF TIMBER HAD BEEN WASHED UP AT THE BLUE LAGOON.
MAINLY TWIGS AND BRANCHES, SO POSSIBLY ALL WASHED DOWN RIVER RECENTLY AND PUSHED TO THE LAGOON BY THE INCOMING TIDE?














I CARRIED BONNIE DOWN BY THE NORTH SIDE OF THE NORTH GARE.
SOME OF THE WW2 BEACH DEFENCES,SEEMED TO HAVE BEEN PLACED ON SOME SUBSTANTIAL TIMBERS, MAYBE AT THE TIME THEY WERE PLACED THERE, THE SAND WAS SOFT AND THEY WERE SINKING INTO THE BEACH?
I WILL CONTACT TEES ARCHAEOLOGY


































SOME OF THE TIMBERS HAD WHAT LOOKED LIKE STAINLESS STEEL WIRE RUNNING THROUGH THEM, AS IF THEY HAD BEEN TIED TOGETHER?

OLD TOWN BEACH 14 02 11

ARRIVED AT 4 10 PM ON WAY HOME FROM WORK
ON THE HUNT FOR SMALL PIECES OF DRIFTWOOD
THE BEACH IS NEAR HARTLEPOOL MARINA
WHERE OLD TOWN USED TO BE. THE BEACH WAS MAINLY SEA COAL
THERE WERE SOME NICE PIECES OF WOOD

I LIKE TO FIND PIECES WITH LOTS OF PATTERNS
ON THEM.



ARGHHHHH
BELOW
IS
AN OLD PHOTOGRAPH
THOUGHT TO BE A FAMILY CONNECTION
SADLY IT HAS ONLY APPEARED AS THE SIZE OF A POSTAGE STAMP
THE PHOTOGRAPH WAS TAKEN AROUND THE AREA I WAS VISITING TODAY
ALL WE NEED IS A PC GURU TO TELL ME HOW TO MAKE THE IMAGE LARGE
FEEL FREE TO SAY ON COMMENTS OPTION

Shop

WAS GOING TO SAY NO BEACH TODAY... BUT DID GO ON,ON WAY TO WORK
ONLY FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES.
ON THE WAY HOME FROM WORK I CALLED IN TO A SHOP THAT I PASS EVERY DAY
BUT HAD NEVER BEEN IN.
IT WAS A FISHING TACKLE SHOP.
THE MAN IN THE SHOP WAS EVER SO HELPFUL
AND KEEN TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF FISHING I WAS DOING.
WHEN I EXPLAINED ABOUT THE SEA GLASS/ DRIFTWOOD COMBOS
HE WAS INTERESTED.
I HAVE TOLD HIM I WILL TAKE HIM ONE.
BELOW ARE SOME OF THE DIFFERING ITEMS
THAT I BOUGHT TODAY.
