    No it's not, it's the first time I have seen that bit of gitder sticking out of the sand, also seeing the large peeble (about 8-9 inches across) and that coloured rock is different from the norm. usually it's just small shells and shingle that's gets washed up.

    Could that girder be the remains of coastal defences from World War II ? Or maybe a bit of old pier ?

    You could be right on both counts, I've seen a picture of Jetty in that area , but that's going back before WWII. That place would definately would of been fenced off very heavily during WWII.

    I've just had an idea for that girder - build a sandcastle around it in the summer and then watch some tough kid try to kick it over :evilsmile:

    Thanks ,i went down to see the seals, and saw him on the rocks,not many people there. for some reason when i try to put a link to a picture of the seals it sets up a link to the whole set on flicker. I don't post much i have to get the hang of it.

    I copy the BB code from Flicker and paste on here, I find that's the easiest way post pictures on here.
