I think you may be on to something here. Many years after his death, my dad's ashes were scattered at sea, off the coast near... Lowestoft!

The only thing I know about my dad's death was that he was found in his car (a red Renault 5) on a beach near Oldton - which is why we moved away so suddenly. I don't have any memory of him leaving or of his saying goodbye. I am hoping that I can perhaps conjure up his farewell as part of this project. In fact, that may well be what this project is all about.

Dad was an alcoholic and depressive, and was also a keen sailor in his youth (I have a log book he made in his teens about a summer sailing trip). The only sea shanty I know is 'what shall we do with the drunken sailor?'.
