SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL 28-02-17.

 14 minutes to high tide at Seaton Carew, Hartlepool.

The waves were reaching the Dunes. I sat there a while watching the Sea and the Sky.

I had never seen one of these before and had to refer to my copy of
THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO BEACHCOMBING
AND THE STRANDLINE
to find it was a Common Sunstar.

Not many finds as it was Bang On high tide.
I am trying to be more selective with my finds.
Here we have some glass, driftwood and some manmade stone flooring ?

19 FEB 2017 SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL.

Once again an after work walk.
Once again the Church clock struck 4 as we hit the Beach.
Weather had been good and the Car Park was still quite full; although the Beach was emptying quickly.

The clouds threatened;but were all talk.
The Sea was well out , but coming in.

We ( Dog and I ). walked as far North Gare.

Bit of a mixture tonight.

17 FEB 2017 SEATON CAREW

Apologies  it is all a little samey at the moment.
Not getting much chance to go further away lately.

The light was amazing.

Driftwood in the Dunes.

He has become accustomed to me stopping regularly and relaxes at the drop of a Hat.

The North Gare in the distance. The band of yellow light stretched across the Horizon.

The Sea looked like liquid silver, there was a stunning late evening light.

The finds.

After work walk.
About an hour to high tide.
Plenty of people about as it is half term and the schools are off.

Love crashing waves.

A small beach clean.

Sea glass; found a fair bit of glass and pottery considering it was close on high tide.
