Part 1 HERE
Let’s have a wander around the harbour and beach first.
There was a boat removal going on while we were there
Everyone found it entertaining
The beach was clean and not too packed,
Seaham’s Lighthouse was built in 1905 to mark the town’s north breakwater. The cylindrical metal tower is painted in an alternating black and white pattern and is 10 meters in height. A green light is shown from the glazed lantern at the top of the tower, which gives a single flash every 10 seconds or in bad weather shows a fixed green light. The tower also holds a Fog Horn which gives a blast every 30 seconds in periods of low viability. So glad I don’t live next to that!
Actually that’s a big fat lie, when the weather kicks off here Seaham lighthouse is the place to be with a camera, check this out a couple of minutes of this film by Ian Britton,
On the way back up the hill from the beach, we saw some more madding crowd coming down,
That’ll do for today, stay tooned folks!
