SEATON SANDS AND NORTH GARE BEACH. 31-01-16.

My walk started at Seaton Sands.
I headed towards the North Gare; two dogs in tow.
The tide was low and the sky was dull.

Plenty of Gravel patches.

The North Gare ahead; picking up finds as I went.

Two fellow beachcombers checking the gravel patches for finds.


We crossed over to the North Gare Beach.


Driftwood scattered on the rocks.

Then back onto the Seaton Beach and back to the car.

The tide was working it's way back in.

I was here.
