It’s joy to wander on a North Norfolk beach with wind streaming in my hair and rustling the marram grass, and the primeval sounds and smells of the sea. I love to watch lazy seals in the sun, seagulls whirling overhead; to feel sand oozing between my toes, the round hardness of pebbles in my hands, and hear the gush of happiness in seashells.

oystercatchers fly
orange beaks breaking up clouds
grey days are ending
