We could practically hear the waves as they rhythmically rearranged the pebbles and seashells up and down the beach. Gusts of sea air brought a perfumed note of lavender that combined with sweet wafts of salted toffee and bramble jam. Burnt notes flickered like kindling in a stove and blackcurrants on the bonfire whilst a sweet maritime aroma came from lobster tails sizzling on the barbeque. The palate carried clean and mineralic properties that encapsulated the flintiness of pouilly fume white wine. Droplets of lime juice splashed onto sweet scallops and salted popcorn as we approached the well-rounded finish of liquorice and salt-crusted ship's oars.
