The young man and the sea

There are 231 steps to be taken on the stairway down to the beach in Sotteville-sur-Mer.

But who comes down, must go up.

On my way up, I met a young man who was going fishing.

The day before he had gone up with 1.9 kg of shrimps. He very much wanted to do it again.

By the way, I counted only 228 steps upwards, but it is possible that three were lost when they were remade in the middle of the twentieth century.
