Sorry I haven't been by in awhile. I love this drawing. It has tells such a nice story to imagine in my mind. An elderly couple out by the shore. They are close together which means they are a happy couple. Is cockling like clamming (where you dig up clams)? I've never heard of it before- but I haven't traveled far from the USA. That's one of the things I enjoy about your blog. Great work.
