Out at sea we could see the gannets fishing, diving headlong into the sea, leaving a telltale splash where they hit the water and disappeared. And on the sand, appropriately enough, a surf clam.
As I type this post I am listening to Words and Music on Radio 3. A fabulous programme. Today the theme is 'The Silver Sea'. It's all very atmospheric! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05mqhb1
