I’m generally not fond of a shingle beach. I like to swim, and the stones make it hard to get into the water. I have sensitive feet. The beach here can be quite beautiful, however. The warm colours belie the true temperature. It is quite chilly today!
UPDATE: Since someone mentioned the sound of the stones, I thought I’d go out and record them. You can hear the sea as well. It’s a binaural recording so sounds better with headphones.
I’ve always been drawn to water. Peaceful, it has the power to calm and sooth. Restless, and the reverse is true. Yesterday, the sea was tranquil. Today you can almost see the Kraken’s roiling limbs.
(This is another binaural recording, best listened to with headphones for the “3D” effect.)
Rows of Memorial Benches line the Brighton and Hove seaside: A peaceful place to sit and remember loved ones lost. Some of the benches are regularly decorated by the families.
Post title The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls inspired by the poem of the same name, by Longfellow.
