BLAST BEACH TO HAWTHORN HIVE AND BACK TO THE BLAST BEACH 27-11-16.



HAD CABIN FEVER SO HEADED FOR THE BLAST BEACH.
IT IS A STEEP BANK DOWN.

HEADED UP THE STEPS AT THE LARGE ROCK, UP AND ONTO THE CLIFF TOP.
IT WAS TWO MINUTES OFF HIGH TIDE WHEN I ARRIVED AT HAWTHORN HIVE BEACH.
THE BEACH WAS ALMOST DIVIDED INTO TWO BY THE STREAM FROM THE DENE. IT IS JUST VISIBLE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PHOTOGRAPH.

A HANDY SCAFFOLDING BOARD MADE A GOOD BRIDGE ... SORRY NO HANDRAIL!

THE RAILWAY VIADUCT AND A FRIEND I FOUND ON THE BEACH. YOU CAN SEE THE STREAM A LITTLE MORE.

HAWTHORN HIVE FINDS... WELL IT WAS HIGH TIDE.

EARLY MORNING, SEATON CAREW 27 11 16.

Set off to Beach before sunrise. I woken up early for work all my life so day's off are no different. I don't have a sleeping in bone in my body.
There was a cold breeze off the sea and a few scattered dog walkers.

The Dog looks out to sea sometimes and looks like he is remembering past adventures.

The Sun made a feeble attempt to show itself.

Some shifting sands have exposed a timber and some metal strips. Not sure what it might have been?

Heading back to the Village.

The Sun put it's hat on and showed it's face.
It lit up Hartlepool's Historic Headland.

Masses of shingle promised more, but here are the Sea Pottery finds.

WWW ..... WORLD WITHOUT WAR

100 years ago today 
Ian Pyott took off from Seaton Carew with a  new weapon of exploding bullets and shot down a German Zeppelin over Hartlepool Bay.
The Zeppelin had bombed the town.
The German Crew that was washed ashore were buried with full military honours in Seaton Carew.
The Zeppelin was captained by Marlene Dietrich's Uncle.

MIDDLETON 25-11-16.

I finish work at 3 on a Friday.
The Dog was getting minded, so on the way out of work I popped to Middleton Beach, Hartlepool.

The sky was so clear as the Sun prepared to say goodbye for the day.

Found lots of glass in my short visit, the glass heart was the best piece.


The Sea wall at Middleton.

A lost key or a break in ?
Everything on the Beach has a story.
Everyone on the Beach has a story.

The pot and stone finds.

Green bonfire glass  and some safety / security glass. If I was artistic  or ever get around to making more things with my finds then this wire glass would make good fish scale designs.



The remainder of the finds for the day own what turned out to be a brief but pleasant and relaxing visit to the Beach of my childhood.

SEATON CAREW 24 11 16.

No lifts to do after work so grabbed two dogs and headed for the Beach in a walk I knew would end in darkness. Supplied with two newly bought torches we set off... 

The darkness dropped like a stone .
The item above caught my eye in the gloom
From a dark distance it looked like large sea bird but closer inspection showed to be an old timber with a heavy concretion  for a base.

Many of the find tonight were located by torch light... 2 torches in fact, as Dad always said take 2 torches on the Beach so from a distance people don't know you are on your own in the darkness on an evening Beach.

Sea Glass from The Gloom...
well worth the effort...
not that there was any effort at all.
My feet touch the sand and I breathe.

SEATON SLUICE 20-11-16. Beach No. 59 for the year.

The Beach at Seaton Sluice, looking North.

The Harbour.
The Mermaid on The Harbour Wall.

A Mermaid and a girl on a swing.







An unusual entrance to the Harbour.
The Harbour was prone to silting up.
Water was stored at high tide and released to flush the Harbour.

CAMBOIS NORTH BEACH 20-11-16. Beach No.58 for the year.

The Beach had such an interesting name; I had to visit.
Maybe best to visit at low tide as the beach looks very tidal.
In the distance is Blyth. Not much in the way of finds today.

It was just great to see new places and meet a few people  through the day. The locals today seemed chatty; which is nice.

A shelter on the coastal walk above Combos Beach; Newbiggin by the Sea is in the far distance.
The River Wansbeck empties onto Combois Beach. It must look a wonderful site as it is filled back up by the in-coming tide.
