Seaford beach "Beach Huts and Boats"

Seaford beach, East Sussex
It's been rather a hectic week , the long awaited Summer has arrived and brought with it 5 painting sales and a trip to the seaside .
Seaford is one of my nearest beaches, as the crow flies , or perhaps I should say as the seagull flies , it's about 15 miles away from my home.
I like Seaford, I was often taken there as a young child. It's very tranquil, unlike Brighton just along the coast.
It also has a lot to see, to the east are the cliffs of Seaford Head where you can walk along the cliff top path to the Seven Sisters.

Seaford Head is also where you will find the Kittiwakes nesting, it can get very noisey! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcyRNjb_FC8
To the west is the busy harbour of Newhaven where the cross channel ferry departs

In between is Seaford beach,( a man made beach that has to be replenished after bad weather

There's a Martello tower that is now used as a museum , a small selection of fishing boats and a colourful row of beach huts. All in all there's something for everyone!
  
I spent a lovely morning exploring the beach and couldn't wait to get home and start painting !
