Absolutely wonderful viv. Now I have to go on my own, I never take the camera to North beach. But your pics have given me second thoughts. No-one, not even Eggy would think the worst of me taking pics of such great sand art. Thank you for posting them.

And for my halfpenny worth, I like Jean's sculpture, and feel it adds to, not detracts from my favourite mile of coastline on earth.

Phil


Don't worry Phil, those sculptures were on the textile beach, before any wading even, and photographed by almost everyone who passed.

Every day the couple would come down the beach and set up a makeshift shelter. The woman went to work on the sculptures while the husband went to sleep!

I'm with you on cameras on the naturist beach. Like you, as a single male I can feel a bit wary alone on the naturist beach. If I started wandering around with a camera I can't imagine what people would think.

If I remember correctly you and Jen will soon be back in Arillas. Enjoy!

Well Dai and Phil - talking of cameras...

John and I were on the North beach last July  / August, covered in mud from head to toe, when a German (we think) lady stopped and asked to take our pictures for some tourist promotional thingy.  She had one of the fancier type cameras with the long lens.  Since we figured we were pretty much unrecognisable, due to the over application of mud (so thick it was taking forever to dry), we agreed.  It was one of our funniest experiences ever; stood there with no clothes on and a complete stranger taking pics :)

I dread to think where the pics might be - perhaps we have an unknown claim to fame or maybe they went straight in the bin ...

Yiammas

Rumour has it , that the Mermaid will stand to attention and salute when a sober person walks past.
(But only applies after 1 am in the morning)

I think i would have to have drunk myself into a stupor before seeing any endearing qualities in this "Mermaid" god she's ugly. I've framed her photograph and put it on the mantle to keep the kids away from the fire place.
