On my way to Spurn today I went to Bridlington (it's kind of on the way) to visit the lovely Gallery 49 in the old town. They are going to show my Spurn work next year and I went to have a chat about that. The drive through East Yorkshire to Bridlington was wet and horrid and the rain continued on between there and Spurn. When I got to Spurn the rain had just about stopped. Finding that the road was closed due to a wash over I walked on the beach near Warren Cottage for a couple of hours and the sun even came out briefly! The tide was right down and there was mud exposed that forms amazing peaks and troughs, very like the formations of the salt marsh over on the estuary side.
The digger cleared the road after a while so I was able to drive down to the lighthouse. I couldn't wait to inspect my bundle on the groyne. It was still there! Unwrapped and rinsed in the sea I found some interesting marks on the fabric; nothing ground breaking, but a starting point.
The bundle left inside has obviously taken colour from the rusty metal but I decided this could do with another soak in sea water. I'll leave this one longer before unwrapping.
