The English Channel is never still. Today, with the blustery winds, the waves were almost terrifying. So different from the calm and quiet waters of Finland!

I believe in the therapeutic powers of nature. The sound of the sea, gently lapping ashore, or roaring like a beast, always calms me down. As does this view – one of my favourites along the south coast of England: the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs.

    Another place I have been – went hiking through the downs to Beachy Head. I so agree with you about the power of nature to soothe and to heal. Unfortunately, Beachy Head is also known for suicides. I guess not all people feel the calming power of nature.

    I know about this dark side of Beachy Head. I took this picture with the crosses on Beachy Head – so sad!
