Life’s still a Beach

It’s just beginning to be a bit colder and blustier- so probably not long before the beachcomb pickings will be a bit more abundant.

So I’ve used what I can for the moment, hoping for more this Winter!

Seaweed is starting to come in and be left in piles on the strandline. I’m always a bit sad for it, as it seems to dry out so quickly. I’ve been pressing some, drawing some, and using the lovely shapes it makes. So it too will be useful in the coming months (although there is some objection as it can get a bit smelly if I take too long to draw or paint it…)
