Once again it was torch time and head for the beach. The weather had cooled slightly and my finger ends knew that it was a mid December night. Very little shingle tonight as a relatively calm sea had just piled more sand upon the beach. It's odd but nice to claim the beach back from the darkness. I used to walk the promenade in the winter months but it is a bit like .." You can look but cannot touch." Well now I can and do! It helps that technology has moved on and torches give good light and batteries last more than a couple of nights. BEACH BUOY.
