Sleeping Giants





Tom and the sleeping giant  -  fairy tale illustration circa 1910




While dog walking on the beach I often come across these seaweed covered stones, looking like
sleeping giants buried in the sand with only the tops of their green hairy heads visible.



















Further along the shore, hairstyles change  ......... the tiny sand mounds are lugworm casts






A small stream wends it's way to the sea










..............  and blue sky is reflected on calm water













Thank you for visiting

Your imagination is great!It looks like green swaying hair. Big blue sky and sea reflecting blue make me comfortable. Dogs look happy.
Have a nice day!

Oooh, one of my favourite things to do, walkng on the shore listening to the sound of the waves. I love the idea of the seaweed covered rocks being the tops of giants heads, think I will have to remember that one to tell my wee Grandaughter when she is older!

Dear Ruby - Green-haired giant lurking under the beach is a fascinating imagination. The seashore looks inspiring you while it is an ideal playground for the dogs. Like to see the blue sky floating on the water – blue sky and blue sea is picture-perfect.
