There is so much beauty to be found on a beach. Beachcombing is a very therapeutic occupation but we don’t need to collect everything that catches our eye – some shells and pebbles may find themselves on a shelf at home, but in some cases all we bring back are photographs.
This sculpture did have human hands as well as the power of the sea to create it.
While we are facing yet more months of limited socialising and mask wearing has become the norm, walking on a beach or through woodland restores peace of mind. We can breathe the fresh air, smell the scents of the natural world – more valuable than any bottled perfume on sale in the shops.
