“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Gotta love it, right? The imagination of some astounds me at times. While walking along Whitecap Beach the other day, we came up on this lovey-dovey. The abundance of seaweed during the height of its season washing ashore, in the rusty red colors, made GREAT hair!! I don't know if she's sunbathing or beached face down. None the less...it's a work of art. I loved how her toes were partially buried in the cool sand!! [top photo] Trust me, the body's natural curves were nearly perfect. Even the hips around the bikini lines [2nd photo] Oh....and she WAS life-sized.

  4. Andy Yes, the color of the sand and seaweed are natural colors. It's a sand sculpture.

  14. Ok, that's cool! Who would have thought?
    About that game. Boo! I want them to win all the time too, but then it wouldn't get exciting would it? Can't believe they would lose to the last place Sox! Maybe tonight will be better. Cervelli will be back soon, and I hope he'll be able to be as good as Russell Martin. He has been awesome for a back up catcher, but I do like Cervelli.
    Have a wonderful day. We're getting a couple of glorious sunshine hours before storms roll in again!

  16. I give you credit for having the most original post for Ruby Tuesday, Anni!

    THE SEEKER OF RUBY AND RED

    The seeker of ruby and red
    Will not let green go to her head;
    Instead she will seek
    Her senses to pique
    With cherry and crimson instead.

  18. Alas, time and tide waits for no man, soon he comes lapping her away.

    Sometimes, I feel sorry for the artist.

    You sure you are not the artist?

  29. I guess everyone of us has this artistic side that we just have to discover. I enojyed figuring out what the red seaweeds are for. Haha!

  30. Oh wow, whoever made her is really good!! She reminds me of the "sand woman" that my youngest brother Guy made on the beach when we had gone camping in British Columbia back in the late 80's. His woman, though, was face up so he had made the boobs and had used seaweed for her hair AND for her, ummmm, private parts! lol I have a picture of it with him lying down beside her, it was hilarious:-) xoxo

  33. What a great photo!! I, too, am blown away by the imagination and artistic gift of others. One of the beaches that we visited on our road trip holds a sand sculpting competition every June. I have it on the calendar to attend. I hope I get to see some wonderful sculptures such as the one you've shown us. Love it! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me and commenting! Have a great week! Candace
