Taking inspiration from previous visits to West Somerset and the very end of Thomas’ journey, his descriptions of Kilve as he reaches the coast include observations of light and weather at the end of the day. As he looks out to sea, and with the Quantocks looming behind he notices that:
"A ragged sky hung threatening over the sea… The water was hardly distinguishable, save by its motion… the wild, hurrying and fitfully gleaming sky… tawny smoke rolling down low from the Quantocks seaward… Over Exmoor storm and sun quarrelled in the cauldron… The wind slackened; the heat grew; the warm, soft gray sky closed in and imprisoned the air which the heat breathed."
