On a beach… welcome to manonabeach®, where you can enjoy beach visits and a flavour of the beach when you’re not there, with interviews asking
“What does the beach mean to you…?”
The series celebrates the elemental power of the beach, where the air, land and sea meet. The beach eulogies here showcase its profound effect on people, whether enhancing creativity, decision making and energy levels, being restorative and settling, as part of a routine or a reference point through generations, perhaps as freedom, an escape or just fun.
In these narratives, beachgoers share their perceptions and recollections, all drawn out by the enhancing effect of the beach. manonabeach® is a construct, a passive Everyman, whose role is to showcase the qualitative responses that have been so generously shared by the interviewees.
