Like any sea, the North Sea can be a cruel place, the life of many a fisherman has been lost. In the old days, in my late teens and early 20s, I was quite a keen beach fisherman and I’ve fished in all sorts of weather, but I think this is the calmest I’ve seen it – though ‘calmness’ only applies to the state of the swell and surf. Just as dangerous, though all but invisible to the casual glance, is the speed of the tide running along the coast – it can rip through at a significant rate – because of this, I’ve never chosen to swim in the sea along the East Coast.
Very dark seaweed covers the foreshore in this spot – it is very, very slippery.
Beautiful calm photo
As you suggest Stephen, looks can be deceiving!
Absolutely. As youngsters, if the tide was going our way, we’d throw a piece of driftwood in and then proceed to throw stones at it all the way home.
A powerful demonstration!
Nobody would take us on trying to hit a static tin can with a pebble. 😉
I am familiar with that type of shore.. lovely
Thanks! I love the shore.
