Every which way?

A quick getaway by jet ski?

A quick getaway by jet ski?

With that blue, blue water and matching sky, you could be excused for thinking I’m somewhere exotic.  Well, it’s a matter of definition.  Seaham, on England’s north east coast, was enjoying a rare balmy day.

It's a nice little town

And it’s the start point for my venture into Cee’s Which Way photo challenge.  There’s so much more I could tell you about Seaham, but I’ll save it for another day.  I know Cee rather likes a sign.  I almost captured this one.

Don't you love a coastal footpath?

I wonder where else Cee might take me.  Click on the logo below or the links and we’ll go and see.



  1. Great shots Jo, you could have fooled me with the first one! I love the surprise of not knowing which path to take. Yours led you to some interesting sights 🙂

  2. Lovely set of photos, Jo. I’ve never heard of Seaham. The North East Coast you say, and formerly industrialised. Are we talking around the Hull area?

    1. You’re welcome, Amy. I just posted the follow up, which gives a fuller picture of Seaham. It’s really a success story from the mining village it once was. 🙂

    1. Hi Sonel 🙂 It’s a real success story because it’s a former mining village and was near derelict for a long time. It’s raining again today so I’m writing a follow up post of the marina. Got to look for the silver linings.

    1. Spoke too soon, Lorna. It’s drizzling this morning but the walkers are going somewhere I’ve not been before so I’ll have to tag along and hope for sunshine later. 🙂

    1. It’s a former mining village that was very run down for a lot of years, Dianne. It’s developing a bit of a marina and I shall do a full walk around later. Just this challenge didn’t lend itself to that. Sunshine improves anywhere 🙂

    1. Sorry, Rich. Normality restored with this morning’s rain. 🙂
      It’s a former pit village that’s had a bit of money spent on it. Not doing too badly, except the weather. Can’t grumble after the last couple of weeks.

    1. Blue sky and Seaham don’t often appear in the same sentence, Cathy. Glad I captured it when I did cos it’s grey and rainy again today. 🙂
      Yep, that sign almost got away…. Have a good week, hon.
