Re: Seaham 2012 : Blast Beach Photo thread

Just another snippet or two of useless info. 'Blast' beach is very probably a contraction of 'ballast' as ships used to lighten their loads quite frequently. In 1993, the SF film Alien 3 used this very location in the opening sequences due to the 'alien' nature [ as mentioned by Ken] of the black sand and the very unusual surrounding rock formations.
It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.
