a gift for the sea gods

A few Sunday’s ago I took the girls to Dowses Beach – the perfect place to collect shells and treasures to make necklaces, bracelets, & collages etc. – all the things girls love to do. It’s funny how one simple idea can turn into a million other possibilities. Azora found many pieces of sun washed crab shells and decided that she wanted to make a crab structure out of it (she takes after her brother). She found all sorts of other materials to construct a body – pieces of horseshoe crab shell, sea grass, scallop shells & other peculiar remains from the sea – it was amazing to see the wheels turning in her head as she discovered more and more treasures. Ceili & Azora also decided to give a gift to the sea gods – in the form of a sand cake – decorated with seashells & freshly gathered seaweed. They truly do respect their environment and felt it right to take the time and build something to acknowledge that. After they were finished Ceili asked me if it was alright if we all just sat there for a while to listen to the waves crash against the sand… she said it was peaceful & I of course couldn’t have agreed more.. Thank you girls for sharing this day with me. Je vous aime beaucoup.
