TATE HILL BEACH AND WHITBY SANDS, WHITBY 29-06-16 Beaches 25 & 26 out of a target of 52 for the year.

The Family stand to the left of Capt. Cook.
My daughter said Whitby is one of 
her favourite places.

The view across to Tate Hill Beach.
In 1855 a ship called Dimitry of Narnia ran aground here.
Bram Stoker visited Whitby and used the wreck as an inspiration for his book Dracula. The book was published two years later in 1857; he changed the ship's name to Demeter of Varna.

The Piers at the Mouth of the River Esk at Whitby.

Whitby swing bridge constructed by Heenan & Froude; they also built Blackpool Tower.
My Father once spent the night underneath it, repairing it when it had broken down. I seem to remember him saying it was a Stormy night.
Across the Esk.

The rain started not long after this picture.

He loves the Beach... any Beach.

Him too.

We were here.

A Coble goes out to sea.

We headed back to the West side a after lunch at a Dog friendly Cafe. 

It was raining, the tide was up but I had to claim Whitby Beach for one of my 52 for the year.


The view to Sandsend.

It was wet. Capt. Cook still had a Seagull on his head.

A TRIP TO SEAHAM HALL BEACH WITH THE CHILDREN ALONG TOO.
IT WAS A WARM DAY THE SEA WAS ABOUT AN HOUR OR TWO FROM BECOMING LOW TIDE. THE VIEW ABOVE IS LOOKING NORTH.

RAIN THREATENED BUT NEVER CAME UNTIL LATE EVENING, AFTER AN HOUR OR SO THE FAMILY WANTED FISH AND CHIPS AND A CAR BOOT SALE.

TINY RED FIND WAS ABOUT THE BEST FIND.
TINY BUT NICE.

SEATON SANDS 24 06 16.

My daughter and her children are over from Italy for a while; they all love the beach, not sure where they get that from ?It's great to see them on my regular beach having freedom and fun. I took the picture in black and white as you see, but it was a warm sunny day here in Seaton Carew, Hartlepool, England

My best find of the day; found North side of North Gare.....where the alleys live.

We had lots of glass finds all mixed up in my beach bag and kids pockets,; but these above where the daughter's beast finds.
Chunky Red sea glass a bottle top and a fossil.

SEATON SANDS, SEATON CAREW, HARTLEPOOL.


Well it was pouring down!
The hay fever had kicked in and the thought of having rain run down my face was what I needed.

Needless to say that the beach was deserted. A few people were sat in cars; music playing as we headed South ... to `North Gare!

It was at the North Gare where I found this message in a bottle.
I had found three others in the past but those had all come from Hartlepool.
This one came from Fladdabister  on The Shetlands.
it set sail 17 th  April  2016.

Finds.
