The lure of the sea is at play.
Echoing in my mind is a poem that has impressed significantly since primary school days,” Sea Fever” by John Masefield,over and over it plays whispering “…I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied…”.A call to imagination and a call to create.
I am getting back to “work”.
This piece was designed to encourage curiosity and creative play.
The crab has his own home under the sand. You can just see him at the side.
The intent of this project is to evoke memories of seaside holidays, especially those walks along the shore, as well as to encourage the telling of many a tale or a poem, or song.
It is meant to be a learning piece too. There is so much to discover about tides and the moon, surf and sand as well as the creatures who live in the deep and along the shore.
Aaaah the sea! What an inspiration.
Oh I must go down to the sea again….
