Back on our favourite beach on the North Wales coast we are carrying on our discovery of the gifts the sea has deposited on the strandline. First she uses her power to shape and smooth, to erode hard and soft matter alike. Feathers, seaweed, boulders, stones and all sorts of wood.
I promised a selection of images of pebbles that the sea has created from man made materials normally found on a building site.
We followed on carefully studying the pebble beach and the strandline picking up interesting pebbles and shells until we felt we needed to turn around and start back. We decided to walk back following the grass path along the top of the beach so made our way carefully over the pebbles and rounded boulders upwards. When doing this we found the remains of an old wooden pier now exposed and well-eroded. This slowed our progress to a stop as here there was so much of interest.
Enjoy our exploration of the old wooden structures and share with us the smells, sounds and sights all around. Follow the gallery by clicking on the first photo and using the right arrow to move on.
Once we decided to make our way back to the car we started searching for objects we wanted to collect to take home as added features to our seaside garden. This part of our garden needs a revamp in the spring so the items we collected will be most useful.
In Strands Part Three we will make our way back to the car and a welcome cup of coffee!

Such beautiful photos that tell such wonderful stories of the ocean and time…Thank you for sharing them.
Lovely, lovely and a wonderful capture of the character of the shoreline and its treasures.
Spell binding photos here; you have a good eye and – I guess a lot of patience.
Many thanks for your comments. Much appreciated. Malc
