Camel's Island, South Shields

Camel’s Island, South Shields

I wasn’t sure whether or not to title this shot “seaweed and surf”, anyway it’s Camel’s Island in Marsden Bay, South Shields. It’s a favourite spot with sea anglers and adventurous young lads, many of whom get trapped there when the tide comes in, sparking an expensive rescue from Tynemouth’s lifeboat! It was probably named Camels Island because it had two humps on it’s back.

  1. Nice DoV. Seaweed’s a bit vague though.

  2. I’ve always enjoyed your seashore photos the most. Very rocky, very unique and something I don’t have the option of capturing from my part of the world. Nicely done Curly.
