Such is the short life of shingle...

NOW that the pebble pushers and shingle shifters have disappeared, I would like to ask a question.

A couple of years ago, with other Eastbourne residents I was asked to adopt a pebble.

I am so relieved that I declined, as we are now parted, never to be reunited, if I had adopted a poor pebble.

Such is the short shelf life of shingle.
