  • I'm letting myself be cast back in time and place by Satie's Nocturnes. Onto Slapton sands. Walking the pebbles with a very gentle summer breeze over the water adding a little chill to the evening.

    The Start Point lighthouse is blinking out three flashes every ten seconds. I'm trying to catch the light with my camera as it comes around. Eventually I do.

    A good place to be, this.
