I'm in paradise or at least what i would want it to be like. The sea air is really good for me and the peacefulness of the island is something i used to love about west bay and mundsley. it's weird when you walk into the pub and everyone knows your name. we leave our laptops in the staff canteen and know that they're safe. it takes some getting use to. the beaches are full of shells of every colour and type. there are rocks i can climb over and little bays of water hidden between. When i walk up the top of the hill at night to get to my room i find myself turning off my torch and just starring up at the sea of stars in the sky. guesney is 3 miles aways and there is barely any little at night on the island so the stars are so clear and bright and so many! I took a walk along the beach today after work and it brought back memories of my childhood holidays, walking for hours on the beach watching the sunset. Every moment i'm here i'm haunted by one thought, Mum would have loved it here. She would have been lining our pockets with shells and rocks she found, she would have tried to find out every bit of history and had us walking up the cliff with her and taking pictures of every bird and flower she came across. I get my love of the sea and the coast from her and she would have had us coming back here every year. she would have fallen in love like i have and would have never wanted to leave.
