Wind and Sea

The old life-saving station had guarded the coastline rescuing those who failed to heed the warnings of the lights. Townspeople would walk the beach scavenging the shoreline to supplement their lives with pieces of shipwrecks scattered by wind and sea.

Today the old life-saving station is a tourist attraction and along the beach, there are sunbathers and surfers – vacationers seeking the pleasures of wind and sea.

time to sit a spell
in the beauty of the day
being old and wise
