I think I've mentioned before how much I love to visit the coast, even - or perhaps, especially - in the winter. We're visiting my dad in Lancaster at the moment, and on Friday we went for a walk along the beach at Sunderland Point. I was chatting to a friend the other day and mentioned that I was probably going to see some "nice and bleak" landscapes - he was a little surprised that I associate "bleak" with "nice" but I do find something strangely mesmerising in grey and windswept scenes. The gorgeous seabirds here were just the icing on a cold and blustery cake.
