10 August

It is the end of another summer. It is time for you to leave the island too. Good-bye to clams and mussels and barnacles, to crows and swallows, gulls and owls, to sea-urchins, seals and porpoises.

It's time to reset the clocks from the rise and fall of the tide, to the come and go of the school bus.

Pack your bag and put in a few treasures - some gull feathers, a few shells, a book of pressed leaves, a piece of quartz that came from a crack in the point.
