The weather in Liverpool has been vicious — rain, wind and hail — but I told myself I will go to the sea this weekend no matter what. I haven’t seen the sea for a couple of months! I found a town on Google Maps called Hoylake which seemed to have a promising beach and it was just 15 minutes away by train. I put my ski jacket on, boots, hat, scarf and gloves and then went outside. The sky was clear but the cold air stung my nose.
Long story short, I got to the beach but to my surprise there was no sea. Just an endless horizon of sand. But then I noticed something extraordinary which I can’t describe. So I made a short video to show you the scene.
I felt like I was in a desert on an uninhabited planet, totally alone.
Then I saw a windsurfer who was surfing on…sand? You can see him (or her?) at the end of my little video.
The wind was so strong that it pushed me back and made me cry.
