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.


  1. the photo on the cover U2 album, was first on a CD by Taylor Deupree

  2. Didn't know that. But big fan of Sugimoto.

  3. It's actually RICHARD CHARTIER + TAYLOR DEUPREE's "Specification.Fifteen", released in 2006 - which is more than 2 years before U2.
