Truly seen our path is meandering and bumpy, matching our route to remedy the errors of the past, to return our seas to pristine beauty.
The boardwalk over the great shingle bank of Dungeness, Kent takes a course of least resistance to reach the English Channel beyond. It is an up and down, twisty journey, and can be seen as a metaphor for mankind's efforts to correct errors of the past, when a lack of forethought resulted in much damage to the seas and its fauna and flora.
I think this curved pathway can be seen as the way forward, to rectify past human impact. It just so happens that this lovely boarded way actually does lead to the sea, as pictured it is clearly most apropos and worthy.
