I’m currently camping in Scotland, whence the lack of new blog posts. In the meantime, here’s a photo of some sea kale on a pebbly beach on the south coast of England, which I visited briefly eight days ago. The new leaves were surprisingly mild and tasty raw.
South of London, the rails branch alarmingly at Clapham Junction — the busiest train station in Europe, with 2000 trains passing through each day. At such places, it’s easy to believe that everyone is on their way somewhere else.
The harbor at Newhaven, however, is refreshingly free of places catering to the tourist crowd.
Those who do go there for a spot of sun and sea don’t seem in much more of a hurry than the sea kale.
They’ve been a great inspiration to me this past week.
