Thank you, Harriet, for your interesting epistle. I hope you have recovered from the cracked glass vessel incident!
Myself, the Cosy Old Sock, and his standard poodle – the Fonz – have been sojourning down at the sea side, if only for the day. I have not been to this particular sea side for nearly 45 years and so the whole trip had the sort of nostalgic redolence which I rarely get to experience. And so it was in thoughtful mode that I directed the Sock down the winding lanes leading to Nooky Bay and its long stretch of unadulterated sand.
The first thing that struck me was how narrow the sands looked compared to the widths of memory. And how small the offshore rocks. However, the length seemed just the same: long and long and long.
