High Tide

The groynes on the Brighton-Hove seafront provide a measuring stick of how high or low the tide is by how much groyne is visible. They also offer a never-ending series of absolutely unique moments, like this one, caught yesterday while sunning myself pre-swim.  I must remember to always carry my camera phone to at least try to snap images to go with the words.  Or are the words enough themselves?

High Tide

Waves roll in

push stones over groyne

create a waterfall of pebbles

 

The interaction between pebbles, sea, and groyne also provides a constantly changing soundscape. Guess I need an underwater microphone to work with that.

  • Leeks ‘N’ Lentils
      Oh Yeah! The simplicity of this dish allows the flavours of the leeks and shiitake mushrooms to blend beautifully. It needs nothing more than salt and freshly ground pepper.  I thought about adding tumeric or fresh herbs, but loved…Read more ›
  • Today’s Whole Foods+
    Just like you, I used to cringe at the idea of  meal replacement shakes.   If anyone suggested them to me, I’d wrinkle my nose in disgust and say: “I only eat whole foods.” I only ate whole foods till I…Read more ›
