2015 A to Z Challenge: V is for VISIT

A-Z Challenge 2015If possible, visit the location you’re writing about. Even though it has changed, something remains, if only the wind, the sun, the mountains or lack of them, the sea, the river.

But beware. Even the sea can change. Of the original five south-east England Cinq Ports, members of a confederation formed in the 12th century for military and trade purposes, two are no longer on the sea.

Rye wasn’t one of the original Cinq Ports, but took over from New Romney which was damaged by storms and silted up. Rye is now two miles from the sea.

Some of my favourite books as a child were those where the girls were rebelling against the restrictions of the time.
