Plodging in the clarts

We went to Saltburn Pier yesterday with the intention of doing some fishing or crabbing. Unfortunately, the tide was out!

However, walking below the pier in search of a good shot, I didn't notice an extra large wave sweep in and swamp my shoes. Having Crocs on, the water went in the sides and top holes so I immediately had very soggy socks.

We did find some small crabs in the water pools beneath the pier. We made sure we put them back though.

English <-> Geordie

Plodging- Paddling in the sea, generally barefoot with trousers rolled up
Clarts- Mud, e.g. as found at Byker Sands, Jarrow Slacks.

Socks anc crocs?!

These are my formal Crocs, not my leisure ones.

Well I knew there had to be something wrong with the "perfect shoes". Not waterproof.

With twelve holes on them, they will struggle to keep water out.

(Two each side and eight on the top, my style).
