We went for a short walk yesterday up to Nose's Point in Seaham, County Durham. This is the view out from the cliffs above the Blast Beach and over the North Sea to Hartlepool in the distance. A short walk you say? Yes .... it was flipping freezing!!!

I hope you are all keeping well and warm ... roll on the Spring!!

Carol

A lovely view and I'll bet it felt good to get home again.
Blast Beach sounds a strange name.

The name comes from the time when coal was mined under the sea here - my husband actually worked in that mine!!

It does look so cold with all that grey sky and sea, Carol: what my Mum used to call bracing weather.

Seems to me that beach would be living up to its name as there would be a truly icy blast from the North Sea at this time of year! Certainly captured the look of it in this image!

A bleak outlook indeed and a sight which I fondly remember, as I once lived in Ryhope many years ago.
