The sun is directly over the equator, daylight hours and darkness are balanced, the sun is shining and at last it feels like Spring. The rocks on the beach have been washed by the tide and are glistening as the tide turns. We feel like we’ve been scoured by the receding winter as the season turns. ‘The sea is an inescapable presence. The salt and ozone tang of a sea breeze is never far distant. An ancient highway linking the islands to each other, and the wider world.’

Inescapable Presence
