The car park

picture of  sea Way car park, southshields, flooded

No cars today!

One of the problems with having a car park so close to the beach occurs in winter, North winds, driving rain, and high tides combine to cause this flooding. This view across the car park looks towards the South Pier and the Volunteer Life Brigade Watch House. It was taken late afternoon as the sun was setting, creating these wonderful warm colours.

You can read more about this car park in Curly's Corner Shop, the blog!

Do they say the 6 p's over there too? Proper planning prevents piss-poor performance. Perhaps the car park should have been placed on higher ground. Have people ever returned to their cars to find them standing in water?
A very peaceful shot.

While I don’t know if the UK celebrates Thanksgiving the same as we do, I wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving in any case. Thanks for all the kind words you have posted at my site over the past few months!
