Sea Beastie


Me :Whats that worm with the pointie nose ?
D : Its a bit of seaweed .
he pokes it with his toe and it wriggles fast across the sand
D : Sorry . Its a sand eel .

For months at Tynemouth D has been seeking pond life in the rock pools . Today we find a starfish , a hermit crab , a sand eel and hundreds of worm casts all within metres of the beach .
We also hear a seal barking , see a heron on the river at Warkworth and see a fishing boat land a catch of four yes four lobsters at Craster harbour .

eyeing up the chalets , Newton by the sea , Northumberland





and wondering whether any are ever for sale and if they are if we could afford one and if we could do they have internet access ( !! ) and if we could and they did , what is the likelihood of erosion and falling into the sea in two years from now and ....well where would we be without our dreams ?

Alice cant resist the birds , Newton by the Sea , Northumberland





We love the way she initially eyes them up nonchalanantly then saunters closer then just as you're thinking of raising the camera she is off and at them , and then on her way back , flat out or at a greyhound angle ( sideways ) having charged right into the sea after them , including submerging herself but sadly too fast for me and the camera .... maybe next time ....
