|The tide has just turned and was heading back in.|
It was a dull morning with a hint of rain.
The amount of shingle made me hopeful of finds.
|I headed towards the North Gare and looked back at an almost empty beach. The strips of shingle can be seen in the distance.|
|There was plenty of shingle down by the North Gare and this Codd Bottle Sea Alley shone like a diamond in the dull morning gloom.|
This time a proper kids marble type sea alley.
|And another Codd Bottle sea alley.|
|I crossed over to the North Gare Beach aka The Blue Lagoon.|
A ship slipped into port down the River Tees.
|The Blue Lagoon was edged by a ring of Seacoal|
|a total of around 50 dead starfish.|
|An old beached Buoy quietly corrodes down by the River mouth.|
|I never usually find much over near the Tees but the recent storm surge had changed the beach landscape a little.|
There was lots of shingle patches to explore, one of them turned up this little beauty glass bottle stopper.
1. Plastic toy.
2. A 1967 threepenny coin.
3. A 1977 Queen's Jubilee Coin.
|The pot finds from today with a couple of pieces of clay pipe stems.|
|Coins, glass, alleys and a bottle top.|
|Another book landed on the doorway today for the world's most reluctant reader, aka ME.|
