The shells have it in my walk this week on the beach in Swansea Bay – big ones, little ones and multiply connected ones. A beautiful day and some much needed space – there would have been peace as well if it hadn’t been for a light aircraft performing aerobatics overhead. But that was quite an interesting sound, and anyway, as I walked down the beach the sound of the waves masked that in the sky. I’ll post the soundscape on Friday as usual.
One of the best things about Swansea Bay is the expanse of beach when the tide is out and that space was just what I wanted on this morning. There were plenty of other people about enjoying the sunshine and sand (and indeed the blue sky above), but none of that hemmed in any individual and everyone was able to wander the shore in relative solitude and enjoy it in their own way.
My eyes were first drawn to the apparent multiple shell(s) seemingly glued together like apartments in a tenement block. I don’t know what that was all about but I think I know someone who probably does and has posted about shells in Swansea Bay herself. So, Jessica, if you’re out there, I would be very grateful if you could explain in the comments what these shells are or why they are apparently glued together.
