"Lemons to Lemonade"

Back when I posted this pairing of photos https://365project.org/Weezilou/365/2018-01-13 It was disheartening to see what had befallen this gorgeous beach. This afternoon we returned to see if time and tides had improved things, and, while it needs more cleansing, I was delighted to see Artists-at-Heart had built some amazing structures! There was a 3-sided "home", complete with roof and a view to the ocean, a pup-tent shelter and this marvelous piece of natural art (among several others).

This formed a Stonehenge-style circle with a strong central formation of seaweed and shells. I found the string of kelp, delicate and lantern like and loved the balance of rocks and shells atop each stick of wood. It was so thoughtfully created, I wonder if it wasn't cathartic for the artist who left it as a transitory gift to passers by.

I photographed it from many angles including some close-ups, and yet, tonight, I feel drawn back to look at it again tomorrow...
What a fabulous find miss Louise! I love it! And you captured it and the essence of the artist (s)! Huge fav! And glad it’s getting better at this beach 😊

It feels optimistic when an artist can create something after the devastation! Glad it’s slowly returning to its former beauty! Nature will find a way!

In desperate times we need signs that help us hold onto hope. These public works of art give everyone who sees them hope that the beach and community will recover. This is lovely and I’m so glad you got to see it and share it with all of us.

Great shot of this artist impression.
(Prefer to see a clean beach. Twice a year volunteers clean our beaches on the populair spots.)
