Milk Sea and Beach Huts
To Torrington to see John & Mary, Dominic & Joanna (who's just this month graduated from Warwick), and in the early evening to Woolacombe Beach for a swim. You can see Lundy Island a few miles away, and on a clear day - which it most certainly was today - you can see Wales. Amazing sea. Slightly nippy, but utterly calm, mirror-like, not even a ripple. Had a Perfect Moment swimming out towards a blurred horizon which looked like a cross between two album covers: U2's No Line on the Horizon and Eno's Small Craft on a Milk Sea. Walking back to the beach, one is confronted by a quite different line: a perfectly coloured sequence of beach huts. Serene.
