It is a warm and sunny day, and we are feeling happy and content as we walk through the graveyard.
There in front of us is a monument in the shape of a boat, and, intrigued we go to look more closely. The inscription speaks of a terrible storm at sea, and many lives lost.
Suddenly the pleasantness of the surrounding countryside is thrown into stark relief by this reminder of the darker side of nature. Despite the warmth we feel from the sun, we are reminded of the cold of the sea that these souls succumbed to.
We carry on with our walk, but a part of us stays here by this reminder of harder times.
