Walkabout 27 – and the waves continue

This time sitting facing North with my back to the caravan listening to the regular rhythm of the tide lapping onto the beach and watching the ripple contrasting on the sand with the sort of monotonous regularity that mesmerizes into calm unlike Matthew Arnold’s Dover Beach where something similar caused him triste it caused me peace and contentment.  Something was disquieting though – facing what I knew was north and out to sea needed a bit of head work to adjust to the fact that the shape of the coastline dictated this and my sense of direction was not completely cock-eyed.

PhotoThe picture of the palm of the previous post – had to turn around this time to see it and the moon was red as it rose… we sat for ages savouring the sounds and sight of the sea accompanied by candlelight and mosquito coils.


About retrocentricaussie

We are a pair of ageing 'gypsies' who find junk and sell antiques, especially objects from the art nouveau/art deco years and old and well-loved tools. We also occasionally buy antiques as well!! We haunt clearance sales, garage sales, charity shops and sometimes dumps. Lately we have even been to a 'proper' auction. The thrill is in the chase for good stuff at prices we can afford and still sell the items on at a profit sufficient to support us. We recycle what other people don't want anymore, we find new homes for nice things. We sell at markets and antique fairs, swap meets and wherever else we can find. Our clientele are mostly ordinary people who want something they can afford that will enhance their quality of life. We are especially pleased when generation Y buy from us. It suggests that appreciation of quality and good design is still part of our modern aesthetic.
