    1. There used to be lots of caravan parks with absolute sea front positions but these days they have mostly been given over to cabins and the caravans get a spot at the back. However in this case I understand the foreshore is only leased so the cabins were further back on the private land.

we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.
