Sunday 160. I must go down to the sea again

Water lapping, waves growling, sigh of surf on shore.
Rattling pebbles across sand and slow drag of kelp over rock.
Scuttling shell creatures.
Sound of the sea.

Exactly 160 characters (including spaces) for The Monkey Man.  Actually, we went to the seaside yesterday and it was wonderful.

A nice word picture. I remember as a child lying awake in our family caravan listening to those sounds as I went off to sleep.

I can smell the sea and taste the salt in the air. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.
