...Andy Goldsworthy made cakes
and played on Aldeburgh beach
with pebbles and debris
he would have been very welcome to join us this past week.
My children are absolutely mad about Andy Goldsworthy! Everywhere they go they spend hours making little worlds like his, having had an amazingly inspiring lesson from a visiting art teacher.
These are beautiful - and that Suffolk coast is just heaven, rain or shine. And I imagine you've had a bit of both, this week!

I used to have a huge book of Andy Goldsworthy's work. What on earth happened to it I wonder?
Many thanks for your kind comment on my blog by the way.

Rock cakes - organic, natural and lovely.

If only he did make cake, a new direction for him maybe

Mmm. Rocky beaches are the best. But then I'm:
1. Not a sand person.
2. An inveterate rock hound.
3. Not a sand person. (I may have mentioned this once or 10,000 times in the past)

Those are lovely photos with beach in the background. Very creative rock cake making too.

I think these pictures need to be added to the World Beach Project the the V & A having been running. http://www.vam.ac.uk/collections/textiles/lawty/world_beach/
Aldeburgh is one of my favourite places. We stay at the Martello Tower. Lying in bed listen to the sea rushing up the beach and the rattle of the shingle as the waves ebb away is sheer bliss. The terrace at the top of the tower has the best views of the beach and beyond.

I'd never heard of Aldeburgh Beach, so I Goolged it and read about "The Scallop" which sounded excellent. The whole area seems so romantic and evocative.
Here in San Diego, we are having a cool summer, and the beach seems more like what I imagine British shorelines to be: soft grays and moody lighting.

That's really cool, reminds me also of Impulse of Delights hand dyed yarn called "River and Rock".
