Love

I love the seashore and so too do the people who own this beach chalet at Silecroft as they have woven it in fishing line and string on their fence. I took this looking out to sea
but had to give the photograph the 'lomo' treatment to boost the colour viewed from the 'right' side. The full sentiment is Peace and Love, the mantra of the sixties which the world could do with more of right now.

The steps to the chalet from the beach  are decorated with the flotsam and jetsum of the tide - nets, floats and lifebuoys;
including one lifebuoy from an old  fishing boat the Gertrude Ann which plies its trade in the Irish Sea and must have lost this on one of its trips.  September has been an unusually warm and calm month so the beach had little of interest for the beachcomber but the rougher winter seas will bring all manner of items.  You may have noticed that the windows of the hut have their protective boards on so no-one was in residence. I hope they notice this mound of string next time they visit
because a bit of sunshine yellow would add to their pallet of colours and perhaps this balloon tag the theme.
 Peace and Love

Thanks for writing about our lovely cabin. You're so very kind to do so. And we love your suggestions. If you ever fancy staying over there then let me know. We only let friends and family use it, but you sound like a friend already! There would be a small fee for use of the electric and cleaning but not a great deal. It's great for writing and thinking and doing some art xxx
