Sculptures down at the beach

Warning, warning!!!
Any country to the east of South Australia, beware, You are likely to get a surge of sea water.
If you look at Granny's photo the horizon is dipping down hill. 
Not a good look for all the states and country's on our Eastern side.

I must tell you we went down to one of our beaches "Brighton", they had lovely sculptures along the fore shore.
So we went at sunset to get some """GOOD"" photos. Well as you can see our photos are NOT good.
This sculpture was pretty all in copper, so I thought I would lean on it for awhile, and guess what???? A lady came along and told me that children were not allowed to go near the sculptures. When Granny explained that this was to show all My followers from different countries our lovely shore line, she said that I could be in the pictures.

Looks like it might topple over. 
Granny hasn't got one leg shorter than the other... REALLY""

Now this was cute, it was a lovely log built little shed that you could look out over the water. Of course I didn't look out, I looked in.
Alright I know you wanted to see me looking out.

Granny said these surfing vans were all the rage in her day. I'm not sure if I should tell you what Australians called them,,, it was a little rude 'Shagging wagons"
Now my Granny would have done none of that. 

This was called a self watering sunflower, because it had a pump attached to it.

What do you think of this Pelican. 

This is what I call a sculpture, I loooved that dog, 
OK just make out.. It was called Rapunsel.
It had wiggly hair out the back. 

I was a little frightened of this guy

Now this is what we Do Not do. put cigarette butts in the sand. 
All the people to the east of us are safe now.... but look out all the people to the west. The sea is tipping again.

I was getting tired and this was a good place to have a rest.

Another chair that's good.
Granny liked these dolphins the best. It was getting dark, They were made out of stainless steal, and were very beautiful. 
All of us Aussies wear flip flops in the summer, I tried this one on, it was a little too big.
OUCH!!!!! These were barb wire dingo's.. very prickly on the tush.. 

OK quizz time. Not where is Wally, where is Wilbur.. 
Can you guess?
Sorry there were so many pictures. 
I am pooped, Granny has gone wonky, well she was before she started by the look of those photos.
Home to bed, with toast, honey and peanut paste, with a glass of warm milk for supper.

These Alstermeria's are for all my lovely followers.

My thought of the day

" Some people are making such
thorough preparation for rainy days
that they aren't enjoying today's sunshine."


  1. What a lovely day you had at the Sculpture Exhibition!We loved them too.

  2. Hi Wilbur,

    Oh silly, I see you sitting on that rock - but you sorta blend in - color wise.

    I enjoyed the "tour", my favorite is the Dolphins too.

  3. Dearest Kay,
    Never have seen such fun sculptures alongside the beach. Quite a sight and that makes for a lovely beach walk.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Looks like you visited Mars or Venus or something :)
    Great pictures WIbur! :)

  5. Looks like you had fun Wilbur. We didn't get down to see the sculptures so it was nice you showed them to us. Brighton is a lovely beach. x jeanette

  6. Hi dear, wonderful post, very great pictures. COMPLIMENTS!!! Have a nice day!!! Kisses AMICA!! ;) NI

  7. Wilbur, you are on the beach and I stuck in snow. And I even don't have such fantastic sculptures! What a place. You look brave on the flying dog!
    All my best to you and Granny

  8. Well we think all the sculpture look fabulous, and we would have loved to have seen them. LT was being very rude and laughing at all those horizons though, so Jack gave her a kick.

  9. What a wonderful trip to see the sculptures and such a good idea that Granny went at sunset when the light was lovely .... I went at mid-day and it wasn't as pretty. Tell Granny I think you'd possibly "Find Wilbur" south of Glenelg on a very high tide day

  10. Wow, Wilbur..those sure are some serioius sculptures..heavens..some were sort of scary though..
    Sending you and Granny a big hug..Abby is doing fine...her nosy sweet self! :)

  11. Hmm..I wrote a comment but it vanished. Did it get to you..I am confused...

  12. Thank you both for this wonderful tour - you, dear Wilbur, for presenting all these amazing sculptures, and Granny for taking the pictures (which weren't good - but indeed excellent... earth isn't flat so why should horizons be... *LOL*). And yes - we did see you!!! ;O)
