|It was a very cold evening walk.|
|Sea still rough.|
|Lots of Seaweed been ripped up,out at sea|
|Another Ghost stone?|
|A few weeks ago I lost my marbles; my sea marbles.|
Above is my Summerhouse / Shed.
Full of bags (I will reuse them Honest.) of Sea Pottery and Sea Glass, drying driftwood and random beach finds.
There is nothing of any financial worth; just finds.
I last remembered seeing the Marbles when I sorted out some items for a jar of beach finds for workmate to give to his daughter.
I remember thinking the jar was too small and located a larger one.
Once I realised that the Marbles where missing, I searched and searched and searched the shed.
|Above is the study.|
I have my more precious finds in here and really this is where the marbles should be. Again I searched and searched in here.
The jar of Marbles was not to be seen.
|I would check and re-check did I hide them here?|
|Did i put them in here?|
Two boxes of my bounty from my first few Seaham visits.
|Or here ... and Yes I know it was a jar that I was looking for or was it?|
|I would check these two at least once a night|
|An old biscuit tin full of some Childhood finds.|
|The blue box was a present to put glass related items in.|
|I would look in here.|
|But not under here !|
Yes, they were under the tray in a Bag!
When i had upsized the finds jar.. i had given them the sea marble jar and placed my finds into bag and under the shelves.
|So now they live in here.|
|Here they are. Paired up with some recent finds.|
The strange things I had only just accepted that they were lost, it was around 1am.
I decided to look for a couple of recent marbles to start off a new jar.
I thought that there maybe some in the blue box, i searched under the trays and there they where.
Maybe there is a moral there too?
|Another fantastic sea.|
It was around high tide and the beach was fairly empty.
|The waves rolled in and I strolled on ....|
|Post and shadow.|
|The roar of the sea was the soundtrack for the evening walk.|
|Still had to be light on your feet to dodge the odd incoming waves.|
|Glass amongst the shingle.|
|Sea Pot and a Stone Heart.|
|Tiny Plastic on a £2 coin.|
