Introduction

The Beach Text Box: The beach, the place I come to when I finish the day.... It's the perfect place to relax after the pressure of working at a Caribbean bar.

Sighing I get up and plod back into my house, thinking of the horror awaiting me at the bar tomorrow. ...read more.

    Although we can carry on attempting to repair and refurbish our coastlines, is this really the appropriate manner in which to follow for long-term problems to come?
