I never tire of walking on Spittal beach. Tide, wind, weather and wildlife combine to make every beach walk a different experience but somehow my photos start to look a little predictable. So here, for a change, is a nostalgic collection of other coastlines, from the Isle of Arran to the Île de Ré and the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. A scrapbook of sea view memories.
