I ummed and ahhhed as to whether to post the monstrous thing to her abode in Cornwall (I know, jealous or what?) where she'd saw, sand and beat it into submission to create yet another jaw-dropping sculpture.
I'd like to think that something I had found could eventually be made into a work of art.
It weighed a ton, so needless to say what with Royal Mail hiking their prices, it remained firmly on the shore. (Sorry Kirsty)
So this time, after a bit of a blowy, over-night storm, I was determined to find her something on the beach I could send using just a second class stamp peeled from an un-franked Christmas card. (Who me? Frugal? )
I'm the selfish type - I like the place to myself - which means getting up at some ungodly hour.
However, I'd been well and truly beaten by a hardy photographer who had staked his place about half a mile out to sea and was, one can only assume, waiting patiently for the light/sky/view to change.
As I was rifling and picking my way through the tangled, black mass of seaweed and rubbish, I had one of those lightbulb moments. It occurred to me that some of my artist friends on Facebook could all benefit in some way from my visit.
Ghost like mask
Decent plank of wood
Another birds head
And a few more pics besides....
miniature rock pool and shells
Sadly, far too much rubbish.....*sighs*
