after a few stormy nights the strand line is way up along the pebbles

and the sea and river together have created a valley in what is usually solid pebblesdsc_0033

I love the way the bridge is being decorated with odd bits of twine, an anonimous communal creative response.

It took about 15 minutes to fill this bucketdsc_0035

…. one of the many things that puzzles me is the amount of empty plastic bottles that people have taken the time to screw the lids back on and then ….? ┬ájust discarded them presumably – what is that about!!!!?

There were some perfectly good gloves left next to where a fire had been lit

It has made me think about the need for a site for lost and found items – I found some prescription sunglasses on a walk three days ago – I’m sure they are much missed.

Hmmm….. how would that work?

And here a canister with the can itself rusted away, just the contents left

I cringe at the thought of what toxic gunk will have gone into the sea.

And there was SO much more. My beloved Newgale, I had never seen so much stuff on it before, surely we MUST reduce our use of plastics .

To cope with the sadness, I look for gems of colour and design which I hope to make pieces of art with. The unknown human stories attached to each item fascinate me.
