If you are a ‘pier-dweller’, it is likely that the only bit of garden you have is on your pier, and it is the only place you have to dry washing. Today it is sunny and relatively still, but on a windy day, the spray blows straight off the sea. Drying your clothes becomes a battle between breeze and brine: between the drying wind and the moist sea spray. But saltwater never truly dries. After a blowy day, your washing is left salty to the touch and smelling ever so slightly of the sea. The memory of the sea lingers in your clothes, your towels, your bedding – it’s everywhere.
