Its green and blue and purple waters extend a call to him to venture into fresh fields. In some great continents such as America, there are towns and villages many thousands of miles from the coast. Children of such places have never seen or heard or felt the waves of the sea. But in the British Isles it is nowhere much more than a hundred miles from the most inland spot. Love of,the sea is in the very blood of the British people.
