Beside the seaside, beside the sea

Travel theme:  Horizons – There is a quality of light in the sky as you approach the sea which is apparent long before you arrive at the coast.  It is this I remember from long ago summer holidays, summers when the sands were too hot to walk on barefoot.  I am still drawn by that light; last week I was at Colvend and could not resist the walk down to Rockcliffe where small family groups were living my past, their futures far out on the endless horizon:

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll along the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play:
“Tiddely-om-pom-pom!”
So just let me be beside the seaside
I’ll be beside myself with glee
And there’s lots of girls beside,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside!
Beside the sea!
