Sandhaven Beach, South Shields

Sailboarding on Sandhaven

Yesterday was one of those really nice days, warm sunshine, clear blue skies, and a gentle breeze, just right for the beach. So I took a walk along Sandhaven Beach in South Shields late in the afternoon and was surprised at how many people were still there lying back, soaking up the sun, building sand castles, or queueing for ice creams. There were quite a few enjoying their sports out on the chilly waters of the North Sea too, with surf boards, sand yachts, and kite boards, it all looked a bit challenging but great fun!

  2. hello mr curly!
    im writing to ask you to take some photos of the artwork located in jarrow near the pedestrian tunnel where the new tyne crossing is being built. It’s several large spray paintings with a theme of ‘jarrow’, i think they are fantastic. Since you’re a pro photo guy with an interest in the local area, this would make some great photos. check them out you’ll see!
    yours is great blog, i come on here often to check out the photo’s of ’round here. nice one!

  3. A great photo! I am partial to this sport; they look like giant butterflys from a distance. While vacationing in Hawaii one time, I spent lots of time watching scores of these young athletes, and would have stayed much longer if my restless family had not wanted to move on.
