Photographer's Note

In recent days the weather in North East England was so great that I have visited several beaches near where I live, and again I have to state that real crowds of people are visiting from the south this summer. How do I know they are from the south? One lady on the parking shared with me very surprised that at this parking you can only pay by cash or by phone and the option of paying with the card is not available. She seemed shocked. Ha ha. Really. Be glad that they recently introduced payments by phone, which in some cases is quite ironic because in some remote locations the phone have no range. After 10 years of living here I got used to it. If someone acts surprised, they must be outsiders. Crowds did not discover this beautiful beach though although we had a brief moment when a lady with huge loudspeakers arrived. They were the size which is used on rock music concerts. She pulled it behind her on wheels like an oversized baggage, and she switched it on… Judging by her behaviour, she may have been drunk. She enjoyed the loud music more than her children. At least we were no more disturbed by the loud seagulls anymore.

I have shared with you a photo of this huge Marsden Rock before. Here are more photos from the same beach showing also other rocks:

I didn’t know it before but the Marsden Rock, similarly to the Azure Window on Gozo/Malta was for a short moment an arch, which however collapsed. Wikipedia says:
In 1911 a large section of the rock collapsed into the sea leaving it as an arch. Continued tidal erosion caused the arch to collapse in 1996.
