One autumn, when everything seemed happy at home, Mrs Cameron took me with her to Freshwater for a few delightful weeks, and then, for the first time I lived with them all, and with kind Mrs Cameron, in the ivy-grown house near the gates of Farringford. For the first time I stayed in the island, and with the people who were dwelling there, and walked with Tennyson along High Down, treading the turf, listening to his talk, while the gulls came sideways, flashing their white breasts against the edge of the cliffs, and the poet’s cloak flapped time to the gusts of the west wind.
