I enjoy - walking with a friend ...

... to say 'hello' to the sea. What a beautiful warm day to go for a walk along the promenade. We went into town, sat in a cafe to have a cup of tea, then walked the other way to watch the fishermen while away the afternoon with a fishing rod just gazing out to sea. 

We came across this sculpture, silvery white, washed up on the seafront waiting for the next high tide to set it down at another destination.

He looked at me helplessly...

... so I had to sit with him to reassure him and to tell him he was much admired. I wished I could take him home but he belonged to the sea. 

What a work of art. So is this sea holly.

Another artistic sculpture from Mother Nature.


  1. The 'sculpture' looked like an exhausted Dragon LOL!

    Lovely day at the Seaside.
