It’s day five of Suze’s fabulous Seven Days of Summer challenge. Why not have a look at all the creative posts that our gorgeous bloggers have created?
Day 5: July 5: You are on a beach. What five things do you pick up off the sand? Tell us about those things.
As I’m currently living on a boat in Greece, (have a look at my blog!) I am often walking along a beach. Not because we’ve run aground, you understand, but because we have moored in a harbour somewhere near a beach, or we might be at anchor and have gone ashore in the dinghy and landed on a beach nearby. Like we did last night. So here are some actual things I have found recently on a Greek beach….
Sea urchin shells are very delicate, and it’s hard to find a whole one. Local people eat the insides! We were once given sea urchins to eat as a free meze with a drink – not something I would recommend. The inside is very salty and looks like snot…..
This pine cone must have fallen off one of the trees behind the beach.
In the middle of the sandy sand, I came across a tiny daisy, surviving and growing all alone.
That chair looks like it has been there for some time. It looks like a Greek taverna chair, which are the most uncomfortable things to sit on, ever. Maybe a frustrated customer threw it out after getting a numb behind (polite UK word for bottom, posterior etc)
This poor red sandal was all alone. How did it get there? Who owns it? Where is the other one?
FInally, a rather pretty shot of a stone with some seaweed attached to it.
Oh dear, that’s six things! I always was a bit of a non-conformist. Sorry, Suze!
