I got told to “eat the world”. I’d planned to go to Glasgow, or was it Mexico? or praps I’ll just stay home. Drowning in lungs, like little pockets of pacific. City folks come down here wearing country clothes. I’ve […]
In preparation for Attempt 2 of Questing for Forest Cove, I went down to Landcove beach, from where I will be able to access Forest Cove at low tide. I hadn’t checked the tide times and so it was inaccessible […]
