When SCUBA SALT sits on SHOCK ROCKS, he feels them rumble, shake and knock.
Scuba's home is at HOT PLOT, close to dinghies, boats and yachts.
His folk, like all Salt folk before, have always felt drawn to the shore.
Scuba knows each Hot Plot cranny and the secrets of the sea - so many.
There are sand dunes, pools and caverns. Here, the strong tides leave their patterns.
Scuba needs a shell at times to listen to the teaching tides.
It helps him hear to a degree the teachings of the SEESAW SEA.
He speech-reads when he is with friends. But there are times when he will spend quiet times to sit alone on the Shock Rocks close to home.
He puts on shoes if there is need. But with bare feet, he feels and heeds so many trembles and vibrations. These all feed Scuba information.
Snail Rail shudders nearby. Its trains leave lower ground, climb high before they chuff back down again, tracking like long, winding veins.
Scuba knows their quakes and trembles and senses when there may be trouble.
He soon alerts the stationmaster if the trains are running slower.
