The limestone is now patterned with acid yellow lichen and seaweeds. The banks of the railway line home to so many different wild flowers and insect life. The shore is an area of special scientific interest because of the birds and wild life. As I collect my objects each week I learn more and more about this place where I was born and grew up. It is familar to me and yet it becomes more interesting as I record my weekly walks. I am getting to know it more. A wet tangled up piece of seaweed, so different when washed and drawn on the page. I like the not knowing what I will find, the strange assortment of objects that are found in the tideline and end up together on my page. Hope you do too.
Millyx p.s. my husband took the Whitby photograph.
