the rain today had left its mark on my window, looking out towards the pre-dawn and the sea smashing the shore and pier. Soon after this photo the sun began its journey, brightening the sky briefly to flaming orange and yellow. Later on we took a walk down to the beach, after the recent storms there is so much sand in places it doesn’t belong! The sea pounded the shore, and caught one of our number unawares at the end of the pier! The children were fascinated by the sea swirling beneath the pier.
