One of my favourite places in the world is Bulverhythe, a short stretch of coastline just down the road,
which, amongst our stony beaches, boasts expanses of smooth sand at low tide…
…cut off from the main road by a railway line,
giving a sense of seclusion for wild walks, runs and bike rides…
…where a wealth of wildlife can be found,
including this cool cormorant standing guard…
…and these terrific turnstones,
clambering about on the rocks.
I feel very lucky to live in Hastings.
It’s good to appreciate our local surroundings.

What do you appreciate about where you live?
