Swell

September 17, 2010

We just love this festival that happens in September every year at our local beach (Currumbin). Local artists display their sculptures along the beach for 2 weeks. We go down at different times of day to see the sculptures in different lights. At night, they are all lit up and it’s great to go down, have a picnic and let the kids roam freely among them. It’s refreshing to get out and have a break from the usual evening routine at home too.

This sandstone sting ray was one of Taiji’s favourites.

I loved these sand shoes. My mother, visiting from Toodyay in Western Australia, loved the sculpture exhibition too. Afterwards, we sat in a cafe overlooking the beach and had a glass of wine while the kids had some hot chips.

All in all, a lovely outing!

    Yes, Swell was a delightful experience, much better than I expected. My favourite was the shoal of silver fishes in the first pic. Hundreds of silver fishes all joined and curving in sinuouos circular shape just as a shoal moves in the ocean. and when you looked at it from the ocean side, the metallic silver surface reflected the light of the sky, the ocean and the sand.

    The sculptures are delightful!

    We went to the beach yesterday and had a picnic of fresh prawns.
    This was our first beach visit of the season, and I am looking forward to many more.
