It was good to return to the same stretch of beach after an interval of a few weeks. I was pleased with the range of finds – that included a roof tile; twine & rope; weathered fragments of textile, plastic and metal; and a partially inflated balloon that had lodged in the groyne.

Due to the weathered nature of many of the finds they seemed to contrast with the last visit; with many of the items on this occasion appearing to be flotsam and jetsam rather than of a more local origin.

I found this visit quite therapeutic and helped to encourage, motivate and re-energise me in my work. I hope to continue such visits, but now on a more infrequent basis, every few weeks, rather than on a weekly basis.
