I liked the bright red and yellow flags on Aberavon Beach when taking this week’s walk there. They denote an area where it is safe to swim but I don’t think the child in this picture, walking determinedly up the beach, had been swimming.
This wasn’t the only young one on the beach – there were plenty of other children running around of course, but also starfish on the move. The patterns made in the sand by the starfish weren’t the only ones either – there had been rain earlier and it had left its stippled mark on the beach after the tide had gone out, leaving its own rippled patterns and pools.
I like the starfish patterns, they’re extraordinary creatures I think.
You’re right there Chris, they are indeed
