Salem Bungalow with Tina

Many tourists and a fair few locals will probably not know that the broken concrete and bricks on the beach between Rhyl and Prestatyn was once a house.

I borrowed this from a Tony Lever " Where in Rhyl? " thread you will find under General Chat

"Rare picture of Salem Bungalow on Rhyl beach.

This property once stood in its own grounds flanked by beautiful lawns with two lines of sand hills separating it from the sea opposite Robin Hood Camp.
As the sand hills were steadily eroded away, the owner was faced with considerable expense building a succession of sea walls to try and protect his property. In late October 1944 high tides coinciding with almost hurricane force gales smashed into the bungalow causing it to collapse like a pack of cards. One eye witness present when the bungalow collapsed recalls the sad sight of beautiful bathroom fittings still standing forlornly, washed by the waves amid the wreckage of the former bungalow. All that remains is a heap of concrete blocks."


This was our venue today,

With the tide on the flood Tina cast the Bass Rod out whilst I did the manly thing and tried to cast to the wind farm.

Within a minute her rod gave the biggest bite signal I've seen in months, " Fish, you've got a Bass!" I shouted,

I was wrong it wasn't a Bass but this Flounder was brilliant all the same!

Not sure who was most thrilled her or me!

Did my best to draw equal and eventually found a tiddler hiding in the pantry

A house on the beach who'd have thought Exclamation
Amazing how the landscape changes especially on the beach, thousands of years ago it would have been all forest down there with the sea much further away with a fisherman just waiting for the Internet to be invented scratch
Bet there were some tidy fish about back then ice

Well done Tina that's a cracking flounder fish cheers
Great snaps Paul Cool and don't worry that yours is only a little one as size isn't everything Wink No Razz

Nice one Paul.

Looks like the majority of the smaller rocks have been buried under the sand. They used to go right to the end of the groynes and were a good spot for crabbing in the past, but as is always the case with Rhyl beach, patches of rocks can be here today and gone tomorrow.
