Back to the beach, rock pools, caves and gentle waves
the baby spuddled amongst the masses of black seaweed, E and my daughter went for a swim and R and I made a labyrinth
When looking for a link to a ‘how to draw a labyrinth’ site for those of you who would like to have a go I came across this site of ‘Peaceful Endeavours’ for children.
I love the way children always run around labyrinths, and R then spent ages making more paths and trails with his spade……
this is one made out of carob pods in the garden of La Serrania, a retreat centre I went to in Majorca some years ago. I went on a walking holiday, but after half a day walking up a mountain and the second half walking down, my right knee gave way, so for the rest of the week whilst the others went walking, I had a delicious time drawing, sewing, chatting to the gardener and creating carob pod labyrinths
and stone spirals
and then a mandala of carob and olives on the terrace just outside my room.
Back on Solva beach another sand dragon was made,
but the tide was coming in so we had to leave her and walked back along the beach creating stories about the sand dragon swimming off to America when the tide came in and all the adventures she would have along the way……..
