As Saturday was a nice balmy day here in the North East we decided to have a trip to barmy Seaham Harbour beach. Apart from the obvious reason to go to the beach, sand, and loads of space for the dogs to run around if the tide is out. Seaham beach is also a spot for collecting sea glass which a lot of folk make into jewellery. When the glass works closed at Seaham they dumped the glass left into the sea and over the years it has been washed and ground down into all sizes. We collect glass but just put it in a large glass vase. It's even mentioned on web sites which are looked at from all parts of the world, bit like Bedlington Pictures.
There's a nice cafe down in Seaham marina, all new and if it's fine a veranda to sit on and watch the sea. Unfortunately not a lot ships use Seaham now as the coal trade has all gone. Marinas might look fine and clean but where there was dirty coal there was a busy port. The Makems
