WOYWW

Quick WOYWW today as I am about to jet off to meet up with fabulous friends, some of which I met on here at WOYWW!

Here is the official piccy of my new car eeeee I LOVE it, this ones not mine its off the VW website


And on the weekend in the new car we went to Crosby Beach and visited the Another Place installation by Antony Gormley, Fabulous, got some awesome photo's, like this! Their is about 200 iron men that are 6'4 in height scattered across a 2 mile stretch of beach. We took a picnic and had a lovely day out. Theirs toilettes at 20p a go and a burger and ice cream van at the free car park if anyone is thinking of going. 1 to 2pm is a good time to go as the tide is out. The figures in the distance in the picture are more men not people on the beach.


Thanks for visiting!

Love the Antony Gormley figures - so solitary and mournful out there on the sands. Enjoy your new car, and your WOYWW rendezvous!

So all these iron men are statues along the beach and you walk for miles to look at them? Do they ever get washed up and covered by water?

Love the car very modern and sleek.

Happy crafting

Hi Clare,
Good to escape the desk now & then. The V-dub is very smooth and cute.
The iron men sound very interesting and must have a fantastic patina in the salty air. There are some bollards along the beach in Geelong that are interesting. They are painted to be people of the foreshore - very different mood but similar in a sense. Will post a couple of pics of them.
Still chugging along to WOYWW folk.
Cheers,
Ros. #14

Your new car looks really great! Is your car also white, like the one in the picture? Looks like it’s got a lot of space inside. It’s the perfect car to go on road trips! And it looks like you already did, haha! I’m sure you enjoyed your new Volkswagen as you went on your first trip to the beach riding it!
