The wind pipes up a little as we make our way to Cumberland
On razor oyster beach, just before the disaster where Eleanor had her shoes ripped off and feet cut.
We moved Dare and Free Range Chicken onto the floating dock to avoid the oysters and fast rising tide. We did not have permission but hoped the owners would understand.
