Scarborough, July, 1842
The sea made the world vast. Anne must have known this before she traveled to the North Yorkshire coast, any coast, for the first time two summers ago, her pencil sketch Sunrise over the Sea born three years earlier while she was at Blake Hall.
Emily assumed the drawing was conceived of Gondal imaginings.
Anne kept it in a leather envelope folder along with other artwork and a sketching block. She liked to look at it as a reminder of her early courage and optimism, which posed a young woman on a rocky precipice, her arm lifted and shielding her eyes to a brightening outlook.
The seagulls were real now, as were the ships as light on the waves as wisps of clouds hung from the heavens. Anne was once again in Scarborough with the Robinsons, well-situated on St. Nicholas Cliff in lodgings she appreciated, not because of their elegance and prestige, proximity to the Spa, Gothic saloon, an excellent library and pleasant walkways, but for the magnificent view of the shimmering South Bay. Looking away from the harbor, arcades, and finery, over a stretch of shore little disturbed except by the tides, beyond swelling, spraying waves to where the sea calmed to meet the sky, she could think of only one way she might be happier.

A fine and subtle spirit dwells
In every little flower,
Each one its own sweet feeling breathes
With more or less of power.
