Anakana Schofield – Award Winning Author of Bina, Martin John and Malarky

Went to the beach to see how and where and whether the storm was shaping up. A generous citizen upped their highbeams as we leapt logs in the unrepentant rain. It was quite amazing. Completely dark. The sea was relatively calm. The rain however was the extreme factor. A tiny umbrella. We took a look and tried to follow the light backwards, careful not to plant or plunge over the strewn logs. I imagined the sand might be entirely waterlogged and impassable, but no it was quite manageable compared to the expanding puddles on the concrete.

The sea was only warming up and could not compete with the tumbling rain. Always worth venturing out to discover how the sea is behaving during various weather systems. I expected the wind to be much higher, but it was early evening.
