The open book, cast in steel, tells a story though a diary page dated June 21st by Chaz Brenchley about the picnic site as a point to watch and wait for a son returning from the sea.
'Every day at first light I come up to the point here carrying my basket. This is my situation and I inhabit it. I spread my blanket. I lay out my maps and charts. I erect my telescope and I watch the sea.'
