We started our evening walk at Limeslade, took the top path round the cliffs and ended at Rotherslade. The tide was in and young boys were daring each other to leap off Donkey Rock before the waves knocked them off.
Rotherslade was 'our' beach when I was growing up. The closest proper beach to our house we would walk there any sunny - or not so sunny - day in the summer holidays, and stretch out on the sand, our tender skin covered in coconut oil: we cooked rather than tanned!
Many years before that Storr's Rock, as it was known then, and Langland Bay were the focus for a number of paintings by the Impressionist artist, Alfred Sisley.
The one on the right was painted in 1897.
