I must go down to the sea again

By helenlinda
We went to Southend on Sea today - to eat our sandwiches in the car as we watched the sea and in the pouring rain.
The people in the water were children on some sort of sport's activity day
The photos were so dark that I have used a bit of magic to brighten up my memory of the day.
Thanks for looking

Stunning work Helen, it's very artistic and needs framing and placing on a wall

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

Couldn't help but check out the words of John Masfield's Sea Fever again
Superb memory of your day at the sea Helen.

Brilliant work Helen - really like this.

I must go down to the sea again,
to the lonely sea and the sky;
I left my shoes and socks there -
I wonder if they're dry? Grin
