This week I’ve been making the most of my local surroundings. I think once you have lived somewhere for a certain amount of time it’s easy to take for granted the local landmarks that make where you live special and unique to you as a person but also to the community that you live in. Personally, St Mary’s Lighthouse is that landmark. It stands tall and stable and really signifies Whitley Bay as a seaside town with a fantastic community, unique independent shops and a lovely beach. During the Spring, seals use the rocks around the Lighthouse to mate which I think is so magical and such a special moment to witness. There is even a special Seal Group with local volunteers to help take care of the seals. They were so beautiful and I feel truly lucky to be able to see such a lovely animal in their natural habitat.

Do you live near the coast? Is there anywhere local to you that signifies where you live?

  • This lighthouse is so beautiful! I’ve never lived by the sea and I don’t think I’ve actually ever seen a lighthouse up close, even though there must be some near where I live! What a lovely place to be. :)
