Boxing Day beachride; Seacliff


Boxing Day, and the annual Beach bash this year i left home before sunrise and after rain all day and night of Xmas day i took the roads to Seacliff, and would be the first on the beach and rode a track free beach before the hoards of Boxing day visitors arrived - early bird catches the worm, and a clean empty beach!...
Seacliff is an amazing little place steeped in history, from the remains of Seacliff Castle and St baldreds Monastery to Seacliff house, then down to the Geggon rock and the amazing tiny harbour steam cut out of the rock and is today reputed to be the smallest commercial harbour in the world....


Then perched on the cliff tops is Tantallon Castle dominating the skyline...


The waves break over the rocks below on the incoming tides and comes in at an amazing rate...



It was light but the sun would be an hour or so before breaking over the raised ground and beam golden light on the coastline...




And the east coast light is quite amazing...








Pics and film done i left the coast as 3 cars arrived and dogs ran barking across the beach and screaming kids... i had my `me time ` on the coast and relaxed decided to split and leave it for others to enjoy in their own way,
Riding home  on flooded country roads  it was good for washing off the salt water wet sand on the bike...

Home and stove on roaring and time to watch `The Great Escape` -it would not be Christmas without a classic movie...


Film on the coast this morning,
Song is `Holographic Universe` by Thievery Corporation...
