”On the Art of Staying at the Seaside: A Meditation at Eastbourne” by H. G. Wells is a short essay. H. G. Wells once different, humorous social satire and ironic.
To stay at the seaside properly, one should not think. But even in staying at the seaside there are intervals, waking moments when meals come, even if there are no appointed meal-times. Moreover, now and then, one must go to buy tobacco, a matter one can trust to no hireling, lest he get it dry.
