Life is precious. One of the most emotional experiences for me in 2017 was a visit to Beachy Head. I was there for the view, the walk and the wildlife.
There was the Knapweed:
There were Burnet Moths:
And Skipper butterflies:
What I didn’t expect was for the place to have such a big effect on me. I parked next to the pub and sauntered down towards the lighthouse and began to see tragic memorials:
There were bunches of flowers, pebbles, crosses, letters; no end of human pain and suffering visited on those left behind because of the pain and suffering of those who left us.
