During the summer, this beach was simply warm, luxurious sand, often too warm to walk barefoot on. Today, it is covered in seaweed dredged from the depths of the sea bed. Storms have rendered it a very different landscape. Still beautiful and alluring but vastly different from its summer persona. The beach continues to be moulded and changed by external factors yet maintains its intrigue and strength of character. We will never know the half of all it has endured and withstood.
Like so many lives around us, ravaged by storms, the depths of which we will never fully know, yet maintaining an integrity and a strength that promises survival. May we always tread respectfully in awe of the changes wrought by the storms affecting those we encounter in our daily lives.
