* 94 *

Finally after what seems like forever being cooped up due to crappy weather I had decided that today we were going out . No matter what the weather was doing we were going to brave the elements - luckily for us it turned out to be a rather nice day.


There were still quite a few black clouds hovering about but there were also a few white ones and a bit of blue sky too and believe it or not it was quite warm, T-shirt warm in fact . So we headed off to the beach and with Tess's post in mind we created some beach art. I also did a bit of stone writing which was inspiration from Pinterest.





If you enlarge the photos you will see that there is writing on the stones beside the figures.




The beach was near enough deserted , a heck of a lot different from when the air show was on and just the way I like it, so I'm going to let the photo's speak for themselves.









It's forecast for nice weather again tomorrow so we'll probably be heading to our normal beach armed with buckets, spades and towels ... fingers crossed as the boys are really looking forward to playing in some rock pools.

Wonderful beach art especially the one with the live model. How did you get him to stay still long enough to take the photo. Good to hear you you had some sun. Tony is ever so pleased as England have just won the cricket and are number one.

Awww, man....you guys are Sooooo lucky to live so close to beaches. I love the cute little beach people -- especially with a real boy beside them!

They're the best days to head out to the beach. We always go down when it's a little bit murky - not a sun bather around.

Love the beach art.

The beach art is great. I didn't realise the figures were so big until a certain little person lay down beside one! I like the stone messages too. Do you leave the stones for passers by to pick up?

I love your blog :-)

This is my first visit but it shall certainly not be my last.

Inspiring, happy-making beach art.

That is funny - I would never have guessed the stone men where that big without your little chap lying down beside them!
