Sculptures By The Sea

My sister, Kirsty, and I went to see Sculptures By The Sea which is on every year at Cottesloe Beach. It's a collection of art pieces on the beach, and my sister was very excited to see the giant goon bag. It was a sunny day so I made sure to bring my parasol. It's always sunny in Perth!
The sculptures were interesting, although some were a bit strange. That's modern art for you!
There was a great sculpture with a mirror finish, a Magpie lark was strutting around in front of it looking at his reflection :)

I'm pretty sure the building in the background is the Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club building.

Creepy Barbie doll sculpture

Fish and chips!

I wish you had taken a pic of that magpie admiring itself in the sculpture!! ;-)

The beach looks beautiful, but also hot. Although maybe not so bad now that you're heading into winter?

A goon bag ... that's so funny!

Art is always fun (eh, almost). That lovely old building in the background on one of the photos looks interesting is it a hotel or something?
I long for a lazy day on the beach. Luckily we don't have much sun here or hot weather, those days can be counted on one hand.

The fish-n-chips sculpture is very realistic. ;)
