Stonehenge, as we all know, is in Wiltshire – well, anything Wiltshire can do……….
Where I now live there is ‘Seahamhenge’ (albeit on a slightly smaller scale, hence my name for it):
The previous photograph is approximately 50 yards from our house, the garden of which – besides having an Escallonia bush – also has a ‘bottle brush’ bush (or is that a tree?):
We have just purchased a canvas print of a photograph (which is entitled ‘Storm Surge’ and which is ‘copyrighted’) taken in December 2016 when a winter storm hit the North East coast, bringing with it a tidal surge. The waves crashing over the lighthouse/harbour wall are, I believe you will agree, quite spectacular. Mind you, during the winter months (when the Gods are angry) it is a common sight – tidal surge or not:
Another print that we have is of a briganteen leaving Seaham Harbour circa 1910. This one is of interest as the grandfather of Helen’s son-in-law was then one of the pilots at Seaham; and it would be nice to think that he was gainfully employed when this photograph was taken:
I post these photographs as a change from the political/Brexit ‘doom and gloom’ (subjects of which I am now sick and tired) that normally appear on this blog.
