The Rock

The Rock, originally uploaded by 4eyes1lens.

"When I was a child, the family came every summer to the same guest house overlooking this rock in the middle of North Berwick's east beach. I never ventured much beyond this 'big rock' and probably know every foothold and way of clambering up it. When the tide is out a large area of rock is exposed along with freshly filled rock pools to explore or to sail a wee wooden yacht in.

Sadly, almost all the big houses along the seafront here that were once filled all summer long with holidaymakers are now private residences. North Berwick fills up instead with day-trippers looking for car parking spaces and kids aren't allowed the freedom to explore and discover for themselves the magic of The Rock."
