Tidelines pencil

I’m calling this seaside project “Tidelines”. The idea came from finding a pencil on the beach and drawing beach pictures with it. Is a bit hackneyed probably, but it does cover drawing and writing. This blog is to record source material, my trips, poems, ideas, writing, photographs and, possibly, early scribbles: a mix of journal, scrapbook and sketchbook. The photo shows the pencil exactly as I found it.  I sharpened it and wrote on a pebble.

Pencil found on Cogden Beach

I think I’m back to 15 places: there are sites from the past in cannot ignore! I think Bridport – the Jurassic Coast from Charmouth to Cogden Beach – will be a link and pivot, past present and future. The list from the past is currently: Holkham, Shingle Street, Leigh to Southend, Brighton, Marazion, Broad Haven or Marloes, and Llanfairfechan. What will be the new discoveries?
