The idea behind this trip was for Adie to start his first piece of artwork for our Home Gallery and for me to hunt for more goodies which have been graciously coughed up by the foaming sea. It was indeed a success. Adie enjoyed his pencil sketch but it came to a halt when unfortunately a wasp decided to indiscriminately target his knee for a good place to plant a sting. They are so mean wasps there is no rhyme or reasons behind why they sting....they just do! In the mad panic we both leapt to our feet and flapped our arms, as one does in these situations, before regaining a calm and dignified pose. It was only then that Adie realised he had lost his pencil rubber. His arty time was scuppered and he called it a day.
Well as you can imagine this left me with a dilemma....was this now a good time to tell Adie I had found some rather nice boards very near to where we found our posts yesterday. (and before you ask....these had been put there intentionally and had previously been used and discarded...so we were ok to rehome them). Adie gave me that look as he does then reluctantly gave in to my pleas as I scrambled down the bank to retrieve them.
Then came the long walk back to the car ...Thank god my lovely hubby can carry a fair weight....but I did my bit too I carried all the chairs and picnic stuff and 2 pieces of wood....well done me I say! Eventually we arrived at the car and both sank into our seats exhausted but pleased again with our haul. Oh happy days....more materials for yet another project. Life is good! Life is full of unexpected surprises!
