I walked into town today to get some food, and it was raining. I didn't notice it at first, but the air smelled strange and not quite right. It didn't smell like a 'town' should smell. It didn't smell like it usually smelled.

Then I realised. The rain was sea water. What I was smelling was the scent of being at the waters edge, skimming stones, or just looking out into the distance.

The clouds had picked the water up and were dropping it back down again on to the town.

I remember again how much I love living by the sea.
