Today we went to Pentle Bay and went hunting for cowrie shells. I think what I love most about Tresco is always being close to the sea ⚓️. There is nothing better than a wander along a beach with the smell of salt in the air, listening to the sound of the sea, watching the waves and looking out to the horizon . I love the way the light changes the colour of the water, sometimes a bright turquoise, other times almost silver, and often a deep angry blue. I like the play of the sky, the land and the sea, and how they are sometimes in start contrast, and other times in complete harmony with each other.
Tresco has white sand beaches, with translucent water and the weather changes often, and it is a wonderful place to see these beautiful arrangements of light and colour. The beach is often deserted (I think most people are happily in their cottages, in no hurry to meet the rain), but if you do venture out, I think it is one of the best places to spend a very happy morning or afternoon.
(And we did find two cowrie shells 🐚🐚 ☺️)
