The wind is blowing and there is a slight chill to the air as it washes over my face. I am watching Dave fish and the sound of the waves crashing on the beach are keeping me company. I can smell the saltiness of the sea air and the slight fishiness of his squid bait. I am keeping guard over the bait as the seagulls lie in wait. The sun is setting without the usual spectacular colours I am used to. This beach is unfamiliar to me but my soul is at peace here. I am comforted by the smells that I know from home. These are the same no matter which body of water I’m gazing upon, or what the feel is of the sand beneath my bare feet. This sand is soft. The beach is wide. But, no matter what the sea is where my heart lies. After a day spent on the beach, a treat of ice cream is always good, served plain, or with a topping, or in this healthy version, it is a perfect end to a perfect setting.
