The melancholy of the late evening hut - # 101/2011
"It's time to pack up now, dear!": that dreaded statement at the close of a lovely childhood day on the beach at THE HUT! The smell of the interior of the hut, the warm cosiness, the packing up and plodding back home on foot. The lingering smell of egg and cress sandwiches and smell of Daddy's war time infantryman's primus stove for boiling water in the whistling kettle. The smell of salty sea air and the shock of discovering sea borne fuel oil stuck to your feet and swimming trunks.
