Sous les pavés, la plage! [Jul. 3rd, 2014|12:16 pm]

Seen on Framwelgate Bridge yesterday, a sand sculptor hard at work on a slightly cartoony dog: he had, of course, brought the sand with him (did he pack it up and take it away afterwards? I don't know).

And, also from the department of 'If it happens anywhere, it must happen everywhere', padlocks are beginning to appear on Pennyferry footbridge. The one tucked discreetly behind one of the struts may have been there a little while, but the garland dangling from the middle of the bridge is new. Not yet an epidemic on the scale of the Pont des Arts, fortunately.

I think I've seen that guy* in York; the sand was on a large cloth and he had a hat (or something) out for coins. It seemed rather surreal, 40 miles from the nearest beach.

*Well, or some other mobile sand sculptor also making a cartoony dog, but how many can there be?

Where York leads, Durham follows - yes, it does seem likely it's the same person. And 'surreal' is the word!
