High Tide

The groynes on the Brighton-Hove seafront provide a measuring stick of how high or low the tide is by how much groyne is visible. They also offer a never-ending series of absolutely unique moments, like this one, caught yesterday while sunning myself pre-swim.  I must remember to always carry my camera phone to at least try to snap images to go with the words.  Or are the words enough themselves?

High Tide

Waves roll in

push stones over groyne

create a waterfall of pebbles

 

The interaction between pebbles, sea, and groyne also provides a constantly changing soundscape. Guess I need an underwater microphone to work with that.
