Hi Alan, the poem came first. Took me ages to find the 'right' image! I love the sea though, so always a pleasure perusing seascapes. Thanks so much for reading and leaving a comment.

You keep them in pots? Like mint so they don’t escape all over the garden😉

Rewilding kids is a fancy way of saying I get to drag teenagers into the countryside, show them some skills and let them loose with maps and tents. In this safety-conscious day and age they’re rarely out of our sight for long as we remotely supervise, the skill is in making them think they’re on their own in their little groups and Bear Grylls-ing it through the wilds.

Hmmm…that sounds a bit like stalking but it’s legit I promise!
