SEATON SANDS, 10 JULY 2020.

A day off..
They arrived at the beach at 6-25 am.
The Car Park was empty apart from the seagulls picking through Mcfast food wrappers and packaging.

It had rained overnight.
Nevertheless it was a pleasant if dull start to the day.
Dull in colour, not in pleasure...

The tide was well in.

An impressive-looking ship, took aim at the rtivermouth.

Apparently powered by natural Gas.

They stacked the stack.
One day Beach Buoy and Stubborn Dog will be the beach.

Almost deserted beach...
The 7 am club are heading south.

!!!!!!!!! 

Back to the van.

SOUTH GARE, 09 JULY 2020.

They arrived at South Gare at 11-05 am.
It was only the third time Beach Buoy had ventured to the other side of the river mouth.
They parked with a view of  Redcar and Saltburn beyond.

It is an intriguing place.
Lots of cabins, odd buildings.
It seems so odd to see things from a different angle after years and years of looking over from the Seaton Carew side of the river.
Everything seemed familiar but different.

After coffee and pie it was time for a walk.

The remains of an old jetty.

Some precarious looking steps.
Seaton Sands Beach is in the distance.

Watchers...

Structure.



Another Coffee in a room with a view;
a view of the Blue Lagoon.
aka North Gare Beach.

Man and Motorcycle.


Tired bench with drift wood.

South Gare Cabins....
Yes, as seen on TV's Vera.

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL. JULY 9, 2020.

They arrived at 6-52am.
It was a Thursday day off.

A Grey sea rolled under grey sky.
The stacked the stack and headed back.

Chocolate Pudding and her owner said hello.

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL 08 JULY 2020

They arrived at 7-15 pm .

There was a breeze from the south.
Ten yachts sailed out in the bay making use of the movement of air.

A massive piece of driftwood washed up.

They stacked the stack.

Beach Buoy couldn't resist another photo of the driftwood.
The day before, Beach Buoy had put some poetry on  social media, stating how his day was going.

A Social Media Follower who is currently up in the North East on holiday retorted with this .....

INSPIRED BY BEACH BUOY'S ODE TO WORK,
THIS WEEK IT IS MY TIME TO SHIRK,
I'M ON MY HOLS IN THE GREAT NORTH EAST,
A BIT MORE SUN WOULD BE NICE AT LEAST.

I SHOULDN'T MOAN COS THERES NO SWEAT AND TOIL,
BUT EVERY DAY HE SEES THE NORTH SEA BOIL,
AND WALK HIS DOG ON THE SANDY BEACH,
FROM OUR HOUSE, THAT'S OUT OF REACH.

I SHOULDN'T MOAN,WE DON'T DO BAD,
WE VISIT LOADS BUT FEEL SO SAD,
THAT WE'RE NOT HERE MORE, IT WOULD BE COOL,
AS LONG AS I DON'T HAVE TO SUPPORT HARTLEPOOL 😉

Thanks @Shithouse-poet

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL. 07 JULY 2020.


THEY ARRIVED AT 6-05 PM
SO DID THE SUN.
THE TIDE HAD JUST TURNED.
TWO FISHERMEN TRIED THERE LUCK A LITTLE TOO FAR NORTH.

THERE WAS A MOODY SKY.

THE BEACH WAS NARROW, THANKS TO THE HIGH TIDE.
THEY STACKED THE STACK
THEN HEADED BACK.

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL 06 JULY 2020.

It was a mild evening.
There was a light pleasant breeze.

It looked cloudy to the North, behind them.

A Paddle boarder paddled like he was leaving it all behind.

The Sun showed up.

They stacked the stack and then had a sit and think.
Much of the time spent wondering just how he was going to be able to get up again.

BEACH BUOY
.

SEATON SANDS, HARTLEPOOL, 5 JULY 2020.

Beach Buoy went upon to bed at 1 am.
Beach Buoy woke up at 3-30 am
Beach Buoy readied himself and Stubborn Dog for the beach at 4-20 am.
Beach Buoy and Stubborn Dog pulled into an empty beach car park at 4-45 am.
It was mornings like this that he was so glad that he had the sea on his doorstep.
He would suffocate otherwise.


It was windy but warm.
The tide was heading out.
Two brightly coloured  teenage couples were leaving the beach behind.

Out in the bay, the wind turbines spun invisible threads of electricity.

Rays of light tried to break through.

Ships come and ships go.

Sea Pottery.

They stacked the stack.
The sun showed up.


Coffee time back at the van.

Toasted teacake worked out ok on the spotty toast thingy.

SALTBURN BY THE SEA.. 4th JULY 2020.

Beach Buoy had been to work.
He had some late evening Business in Brotton.
Brotton is nearby to Saltburn by the sea.
It would have been rude not to pop in on the way back.

Surfers were surfing.


The Pier called....

Hello Pier.

Seaton Carew lies beyond....

Stubborn Dog shows that he can be Stubborn on Pier or beach... no problem.

Riding the wave.

The bars were open today.......
