|Evening walk again.|
The tide was quite high but going out a fair distance, then rushing back in to catch the unwary out.
|Heads you win.|
|The waves rolled in near to the North Gare.|
|With the tide being well up we wandered back through the Dunes for a while.|
|Then in was back down on the Beach, dodging waves.|
|Someone wanted to stay!|

|It had been a misty day of Pale colours and cool breezes.|
|The strand line seemed popular this evening.|
The tide was slowly but relentlessly edging its way out.
The romantic in me thinks the wooden block is off an old shipwreck.

|FINALLY! BRITISH SUMMER IS HERE.|
IT WAS WORK TODAY SO I STOPPED OFF AT BEACH BEFORE WORK TO SEE THE SEA.
THE SKY LOOKED LOVELY.
|JUST AS I WAS ABOUT TO SET OFF FOR WORK, THE SUN SHOWED. IT WAS SURPRISING HOW QUICKLY THE SUN ROSE ON THE HORIZON... AND SO TO WORK.....|
|WORK DONE AND IT WAS OFF TO THE BEACH WITH IT'S STORY OF A MILLION FOOTPRINTS, EACH WITH A STORY OF IT'S OWN.|
|THIS SEA GLASS WILL MOST PROBABLY NEVER LOOK AS NICE AS IT IS IN THIS SETTING.|
A JOHN PRINE LYRIC SAYS
"AIN"T IT FUNNY HOW AN OLD BROKEN BOTTLE, LOOKS JUST LIKE A DIAMOND RING."
|WE CROSSED OVER TO THE BLUE LAGOON.|

|The day was punctuated by Kayaks, Microlights and really annoying drones but they couldn't spoil a glorious day of lovely weather.|
|I knew the tide was going out, so it was safe to pass this pinch point in the cliffs|
|A driftwood bird sticking it's beak in!|
|I didn't go hunting for glass, it was more of a ... enjoy the nice day walk... but I did find this well worn bottle top.|
|There had been a cliff fall / land slip and it looked a bit risky to cross over to Ryhope Beach.|
|The light began to fade as we headed back, thankfully the clocks go forward at the weekend.|
Lighter nights are on the way and life becomes that little bit better.

|A late afternoon walk on Seaton Sands and on to North Gare Beach. Both Beaches were deserted.|
The wind was strong and cold and the drizzle eventually turned to rain.
|A bonnie stone, Looking a little like a piece of Salmon?|
|After a short mooch over on North Gare Beach at the mouth of The River Tees it was back to Hartlepool Bay|
|Tonight's finds... nothing flash really.|

|It was a round 5-30pm.|
It was a windy day and the dry dune sand had stuck like glue to the wet Beach sand, making it harder to locate finds.
|The view back to Seaton Carew on the first day of spring.|
A Fossil, Sea Pottery and Sea Glass, the picture does not do the large Blue piece justice... I would call it Aqua blue.
|I had been to work; grabbed a cup of tea.|
I drove the short distance to the Beach and parked next to the Crazy Bunny Lady....
Bishop Brennan would not be Happy
PEACE LOVE RABBITS
|Thankfully the tide was out a fair amount so it meant could most probably have a mooch down at the North Gare.|
|A Pot screw-thread bottle top...|
Thanks to North Gare.
|He was his usual unimpressed self, taking a nap on shingle!|
The blocks in the background are World War Two defences.
|The afternoon was grand so we headed on over to North Gare Beach. Some shingle has appeared recently, beyond the grey rocks in the distance.|
Shingle can mean finds!
|Blue and White Sea Alley.. (Marble)|
|Part of my #2minutebeachclean|
|A lovely Green Sea Alley.... liked a little like a|
|He had a rest in the rippled sand ..|
He'll remember this.
|The late afternoon Sun shone on the Rolling Sea.|
