There is a foot path that winds along the cliff edge in which you can look down towards the crashing waves and out west to the horizon. I was born about five minutes walk from there. We all grew up as a beach urchins, snooping around every nook and cranny of this small curve of coast. Though my parents are no longer married, December 19th was their anniversary.Michael Newberrywww.newberrygallery.com/exhibit/still/still.html Edited March 20, 2010 by Newberry Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
