Pebble Dash

Waves on pebbles at Shanklin Chine

Contending with a chesty cough, my outdoor time this weekend was pretty still.  We took a trip to Shanklin Chine, a classic old seaside destination with a quiet out-of-season feel.  I’m not very good and sitting and doing nothing, but a pebbly beach certainly encourages it.  The roar of waves and retreating rattle of hundreds of pebbles rolling over each other is a sound that demands full attention, and cuts out everything else.  I could sit and listen to it for hours.  Which is a good job, when you’re on a beach trip with a photographer.
