Beyond The Lighthouse

Beyond the lighthouse, beyond the steep steps that twist and wind their way down to the shore, beyond the chalk white cliffs that reflect the Autumn sunshine, beyond the smooth white pebbles that roll beneath the soles of our shoes and the sand that crunches and crumbles beneath our feet, beyond the slimy swathes of seaweed that sit mysteriously at the waters edge and the fine foam that lingers at the shoreline like a fragile memory, lies the sea.

And it's so vast and beautiful and awesome that we're all  silenced in the face of its majesty, and even John stands seriously with his wellies in the shallows, gazing thoughtfully out across its choppy expanse towards the stillness where the horizon meets the sky.
