|A LOVELY EVENING WALK BY THE SEA.|
THE TIDE WAS ALMOST AT IT'S PEAK.
|ME AND FLUFFY LUGS, JUST SHOOTING THE BREEZE.|
|It was an Afternoon trip.|
A Bank Holiday.
The weather had put lots off coming to the Seaside and I don't suppose the new parking charges won't have helped.
|We walked over to the River Tees.|
|Balloons KILL !|
|THE WEATHER FORECAST SAID RAIN LATER,|
I MANAGED TO DO THE BEACH IN LIGHT DRIZZLE JUST AFTER HIGH TIDE.
|I LOVE THE BEACH FOR MANY REASON.|
ONE IS TO DAYDREAM.
IN MY DAYDREAM MODE THIS LARGE DRIFTWOOD
WOULD MAKE IDEAL FIREWOOD, ONCE CUT AND DRIED; STORED AS STOCK AT THAT SHACK ON THAT BEACH.
|Have been ill, hence no Beach for almost a week; the last few had been hard work.|
I was up at 4-30 am and on the Beach at 5-45 am.
It was so peaceful and warm.
I had shorts on !
|Being more selective with what I keep after giving away 14 heavy bags of Seaglass to the National Glass Centre in Sunderland.|
A few hours later I headed over to Hartlepool's Headland.
|The Fish Sands losing it's battle with the in-coming tide.|
|Pilot Cabin on the Pilot Pier.|
|The temperature suddenly dropped and the Wind picked; Rain was coming.|
|I had parked over Near The Headland's Lighthouse.|
|It was an early morning Beach walk.|
|The tide was well out.|
|Balloon up towards North Gare.|
Next on the agenda was a trip to Sunderland Glass Centre
I was donating 14 heavy bags of sea glass to their learning centre.
On the way back after a bit of a car incident, we stopped at Seaham.
|Slope Beach Seaham.|
|Our happy dog on Red Acre Beach.|
|Found these on Red Acre Beach, Seaham.|
|It had looked like rain when I set off on the ten minute walk to the Beach. Glad to report that the Sun came out to play and all was good.|
|Across the Bay...|
|We pretty much had the Beach to ourselves.|
We had a nice sit down.
He is looking ups towards the Dunes, he knows we are off on a longer walk to North Gare Beach if we had for Dunes.
He always picks up his speed if he knows he is getting an extra long walk.
|CAR PARK NOT AS FULL AS IT SHOULD BE .|
I THINK THE NEWLY INTRODUCED PARKING FEES ARE HAVING AN DETRIMENTAL EFFECT ON THE RESORT.
|NICE CLOUD FORMATION.|
|LOTS OF SHINGLE TODAY.|
|SEATON CAREW AT LOW TIDE ; A VAST EXPANSE OF BEACH.|
|SEAGULLS FEEDING AT THE OUTLET.|
|I LATER WENT TO HARTLEPOOL'S HEADLAND.|
|HARTLEPOOL PILOT PIER.|
|SOME OF MY BROWN FINDS.|
|DRAWINGS OF FINDS I MADE A GOOD WHILE BACK.|
|SOME GREENISH FINDS FROM THE PAST.|
