Today has been lovely and sunny so we've been making the most of it down at the beach! The surf was the best it's been so far so Sam's been catching a lot of waves and I've been taking a lot of videos!
While I was waiting for Sam to catch a wave worth filming, I noticed another one of these dragonflies that I drew on the beach the other day. They really are eye-catching with their black and yellow colouring.

There are lots of crabs on the beach which scuttle back down their holes when you approach them. For about 30cm around their holes are lots of neat little balls of sand arranged in some very intricate looking patterns. It's a shame their artwork is all washed away by the surf!

I tried many times to take a good photo of a wave, but I think this is the best one, I like the spray with the headland in the background.
Now for my creative output today! Over at Creative Tuesdays there's a two weekly drawing feature with one word for inspiration, this time it was candy (or sweets as I'm British!). This is my doodled contribution, not particularly inspired I know, but I have no sweets to hand! I promise my next entry will be better!

This is the sketch I did on the beach this morning, I think it needs some water adding to make the paint run to give some shadow - that's tomorrow's job!

I'll leave you with this picture of a spider in it's web which has been hanging around outside our bungalow for the whole time we've been here!
