Similarly, a chunk of compressed tobacco waste, fallen from a cliff, is the key to a fascinating episode in which Imperial Tobacco dumped the by-product of cigarette manufacturing along a stretch of the coast that is now being eroded by the sea.
Morro Strand State Beach
We think of the sea as wild and untamed, yet the secrets it contains and reveals are very often of our own making. And where Sightlines and Findings took observations of the natural world as jumping-off points for freewheeling philosophical meditations, Strands packs in more factual research — sometimes, it has to be said, a little at the expense of its lyrical tone.
Strands works because although Sprackland is not a marine biologist, an archaeologist or a local historian, but, like us, someone walking on the beach and finding treasures, what she brings to her finds is the kind of imaginative insight that results from a life spent making poems, and the ability to render those discoveries for us in clean, sparkling prose.
Her jumble of marine treasures add up to a unique account, one which may leave you longing to live, and not just holiday, by the sea. View all posts by ntpurbeckcoast.
