I've never been one for the sea. It's tricky to find the nucleus of my loathing. The almost-alien creatures that lurk beneath that seem almost exclusively designed to make me cry. The seaweed that clings to you like a drunk relative at a wedding. Possibly it's the fact that the first time I encountered the salty waves on a foreign shore, jumping and diving between the crests and troughs, two minutes later I was bundled in a pair of hairy German arms after almost succumbing to the murky Mallorcan depths.

In spite of my near-drowning, and all the other quite valid reasons, I must admit it does look rather nice. In fact, put me on a waterfront bar, sat outside with my favourite vices within arm's reach, I'll have a peculiar little grin tattooed on my face for the duration - along with the odd sanguine sigh each time one of my world's troubles drops away from the back of my mind like a child off a bouncy castle.

Sadly, Glossop is well and truly landlocked, and Peli have the temerity to not supply the marketing department with bottled lager on a Friday. But our Instagram followers have stepped up yet again to help me play make believe. For their efforts they will get themselves a Peli Memory Card Case, and you could too. Follow us on Instagram, and if you want to be really good, tag your shots with #peliphoto to grab our attention.
