There was a Children's Beach art competition going on. We didn't join in with this (but wished we had, we would have been good!) but enjoyed watching the other competitors. In the afternoon we listened to a (free!) talk and demonstration on seashore life, by a University lecturer.
(My pages ended up being a little neater than previous ones. For the additional pictures of shells and starfish I copied my seashore shell collection on a scanner).
My sons enjoyed playing in the sand for hours and dug themselves a massive hole that loads of kids came along to play in. The other photos show that at the end of the day you can't beat a bit of net fishing in rock pools.
As part of the festival also, they had a cartoonist drawing caracatures. I waited in the queue for one whole hour but it was worth it for such a good, free portrait!
Thanks for looking and for any non-spam comments!
