Peter, the one in the fog shows the dragon well, too. Almost a Viking or 
Celtic sort of theme. Showing my appalling cultural
references I thought of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It would be 
worthwhile to retouch out the inevitable graffiti. Shame we
can't retouch the idiots that mar these things.
I'm trying really hard to get that b***dy song about puff living by the sea 
out of my head now.
I looked at the rest of the gallery, of course. This self foot portrait is 
one of those recurring LUG themes, I think. The ripples
have lots of potential, too.

Hoppy:  Yes, indeed.  There were all sorts of philosophical discussions on 
the beach about the animal nature of this piece of driftwood.  We initially 
thought it looked like a giraffe.  With the "claw" supplied by the second 
branch, I thought it looked like a friendly dragon following the kids, 
wanting to play, too.  Pteradactyl is perfectly valid interpretation, too.

Here he is a bit later, enveloped in fog that also swallowed the wedding 
going on further down the beach.  Helped tame the brightness range, though.

I just finished up the folder from this trip. More in the next post.
