Excerpt from The Common Objects of the Sea Shore: Including Hints for an Aquarium
Whether the sea is approached by land or by water, the first indications of its existence are generally to be found in the air. On some days, the electric clouds that skirt the clifis map out, as it were, the sea-coast and when such signs fail, the marine birds give evident tokens that the sea, their great store-house, is close at hand. With the birds, then, we will commence our observations of the sea and its shores.
