I FORGET the beach is so close. I grew up inland and though we’ve lived on the coast for six years I haven’t really explored all the nearby beaches. There’s a strange sense of feeling alien, as though this space, this place, is not mine. I guess the beaches belong to everyone, and no one, but I feel out of place there. We walked the dog along an off-leash stretch of beach on Sunday and while the dog frolicked I snapped pictures of the coastal textures and colours I am growing to love. Is there somewhere you feel out of place? Why do you think that is?
