Whilst walking on the seashore last week, looking for anything unusual that might have been left behind by the ebbing tide, I became increasingly attracted to the pebbles themselves. In fact, it was a shingle beach so the pebbles were very small – the largest not more than 3cms across – and yet the variety of shapes, colours, textures and patterns was fascinating. How easy it is to overlook the familiar!
It is a constant source of amazement that the ebbing sea can leave behind such intricate patterns in the sand.
