...even in December. After early morning treasure-hunting at the lovely Caygill Antiques and Vintage Fair in Hartlepool, County Durham, last Sunday, we motored down the coast a few miles to Seaton Carew for a walk along the sands. I don't suppose many have heard of this little place - originally a fishing village, in the 18th and 19th centuries it grew into a holiday resort for wealthy Quaker families from Darlington. In the 20th Century it was a popular place for a day-trip, a bit of sea air for coal miners and their families.
Here it is today.
Artist Margaret Green (see here) painted Bus Trip from the Pits in 1956.
It still has a strange beauty, don't you think?
