SEATON CAREW 30-03-17.

Looking to South.
The lines on the Beach are from the Beach cleaning machine.
The local council are blitzing the village with proposed parking charges.
The charges were to come into place on April 1st.
The machine haven't turned up on time.
I'm so pleased
Ha Ha Ha Hartlepool Council.
The last place you need to be checking your watch is on the 
BEACH!
BEACH BUOY!

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL 29 03 17.

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!

Tonight's finds.

28 03 17. SEATON SANDS.

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 Finds.
The romantic in me thinks the wooden block is off an old shipwreck.

SEATON CAREW 26 03 17. BRITISH SUMMER TIME.

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.
GORGEOUS COLOUR.
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.




THIS SIGN IS VERY MISLEADING, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A MAP. THIS SIGN LIES SOUTH (WITHIN) THE DOG ALLOWED AREA. REALLY THIS SIGN SHOULD SAY.
DOGS WELCOME ALL YEAR ROUND FROM THIS POINT ALL THE WAY TO THE RIVER TEES AND BACK.
I WILL BE PHONING THE COUNCIL.

SEAHAM HALL BEACH. 25 03 17.

It was just gone high tide.
I had planned to go to Noses Point and walk to Hawthorn Hive, but it would have meant very little beach to walk on.
I headed to Seaham Hall Beach and after a sit in the Sun I shuffled along as far as the stack that marks the access to Ryhope Beach.
The day was punctuated by Kayaks, Microlights and really annoying drones but they couldn't spoil a glorious day of lovely weather.

Heading North...

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.

The stack.

There had been a cliff fall / land slip and it looked a bit risky to cross over to Ryhope Beach.


SEATON CAREW 24 03 17


Yet another late afternoon walk on Seaton Sands at Seaton Carew, Hartlepool. The non tidal part of the beach is still looking very stoney after many windy days have stripped off a lot of the soft surface sand.
It will be back ... thats what Beaches do best.

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.

SEATON SANDS AND NORTH GARE BEACH 22 03 17.

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.

SEATON SANDS 20-03-17.

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.

The finds.
A Fossil, Sea Pottery and Sea Glass, the picture does not do the large Blue piece justice... I would call it Aqua blue.



BEACH BUOY.

SEATON SANDS AND ONTO NORTH GARE BEACH 19-03-17.

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
(Father Ted.)
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
Gooseberry.

He had a rest in the rippled sand ..
He'll remember this.

The late afternoon Sun shone on the Rolling Sea.

If Only!

Today's finds.
Pleased.
