Cocklawburn Beach, Northumberland.
This is, perhaps, my favorite beach in the world. It is wild, vast, and almost always windy. The sea is never warm, never still, and the beach is dressed with a new array of stones, driftwood, and sea weed with every tide.
While Cocklawburn’s landscape is stunning, I am never disappointed when I look closely in the rocky outcrops or along the tideline. The changing clouds made these tiny pits in the rock, only about 2″ each, seem to wink back at me as the water reflected bits of brightness. The colors in the pebbles are completely lost to the enormity of the landscape unless there is a close look taken. Being prone to personify the landscape I heard A.A. Milne’s Eeyore in these tiny pools… “Thanks for noticing me…”
