The sea was moody and grey, but Algy felt happy just sitting on a rock, watching the tide come in and listening to the soothing sounds that the water made all around him.
Algy created this little adventure for all his Tumblr friends who love the sea but cannot be near it just now, and especially for Emily in Australia, the rainbow warrior who cares so much about the marine environment, and for Jürgen in Germany, who lives in a city and misses the sea sadly.
…and for Stephanie, who dearly loves this sea.
Sand, under a 250x microscope
One of my favourite things to do as a child was to pick up a handful of sand, get really close and stare at it. Unfortunately I didn’t possess sight that would maginify it 250 times, but still, it looked like a miracle to me. All those beautiful little fragments of shells and stone and inevitably glass, battered and smoothed, having traveled many miles to reach shore. A long journey to end up under my feet and in my hand to delight and fascinate one young girl.
