The Beach after the Gales

12th December 2014

Today we braved the icy wind and walked along the prom to the beach....




.....a thick rope washed up...


.....so many shells....


....and starfish...


....this almost looks like a family.....


.....a big shell with the creature still inside....


.....this was the reason for all the gulls....



.....in all the years we have lived in Blackpool I have never seen so many sea urchins....


.....more starfish...


....one minute after this was taken we had a sleet storm...


....which produced this amazing rainbow, unfortunately my photo does not show its true beauty!


Arrived home and had hot chocolate and a mince pie!!

 Yesterday RD made me a 'bug hotel'....



...and last night we went out with 'The Friends of the Park' for our annual Christmas meal to the Casino!! I have never been to a 'gambling establishment' but we spent an enjoyable time after our delicious meal playing Roulette with free chips!! I didn't win once but three of our party went home with £20 which paid for their meal!!

This morning I was relaxing with my first cup of coffee of the day and catching up with fb when I saw this post....


....so had a go....


.....and another using my Gelli print paper....


......I bought this book from a charity shop a couple of years ago for 50p....


.....cut this square from one of the pages....



...and made another tree....



....the first took about 20 minutes but the last about 10....

....I have always enjoyed paper folding and had fun making my little paper tree forest!

Why not click on the link and make one of your own, I did find the larger square easier to work.....

....happy tree folding!
