Book review: Sea Journal by Lisa Woollett


It’s a beautiful read. Mindful, slow, inspirational, interesting, funny. And the photographs of the sea and of the sea life make the read so real and yet incredibly artistic. I started reading it when I was by the sea and couldn’t stop, just continued reading it every day. I was so amazed by it that I was telling some of the stories to my family and we had long discussions about how fascinating nature is and how incredible it is that a small fossil can lead us a hundred or even a million years back. It shows how everything is linked yet individual and how every little creation plays its important role in forming nature. It’s also a gentle reminder that plastic doesn’t belong in nature (!).

‘Sea Journal’ is written by Lisa Woollett, a photographer and writer currently living in Cornwall (my short review of her previous book you can find here). I know I’ll return to Lisa’s stories as the year goes by and I re-visit the sea. A pleasure of reading and discovering nature.

One of my absolute favourite stories is about a Lego dragon. Which story is your favourite? Do let me know in the comments below.
