Happy Birthday, William (You Stink!)

 And, apparently, Katie smells of poo and Tom is gay.  Oh, and it seems Bob Dylan fancies himself as the next Banksy with a seaside installation consisting of some rather suspect faces...

 But before we get to all that, there's another week of mornings, including Groynes!  War of the Worlds!  Cormorants!  And that Red Admiral on the right (the garden is full of them at the mo - along with Peacock butterflies, Commas, Painted Ladies, Tortoiseshells, Coppers, and the ubiquitous and varied whites).

Oh, dear...  The Martians have begun seeding Earth with their red weed...

Well, I'm certainly not swimming in that lot!

Thursday

Drama Queen!



Friday


Bloody Martians!

Cormorants!!

Saturday

Today, Sunday




I'm rather surprised that the mouths aren't "sideways smiles"...

Let's finish the photos with a nice groyne-and-a-bit, shall we?

And, finally, here's a tenuously linked* tune from the Scissor Sisters: "Kiss You Off"

 

* Not to ending the post (because that would be a bit rude), but to the graffiti caption.

  1. Ha ha ha! - the kids round your way really don't have much to do except scratch insults into sea walls, do they?

    Apparently, "seaweed bathing helps lower body stress and relieve skin conditions", so dive in! Jx

    PS New shags!

    1. Once it's all been washed up on the beach, the seaweed's fine (if rather stenchful), but when one is swimming amidst it, one does wonder if it's seaweed tickling one's fancy or something else...

      I'm glad I spotted those cormorants, as I haven't seen many this year. In fact, this is only my third post this year to feature any! I hope they haven't been scared off by the chalk-scrawling delinquents?

  2. I'm shocked that there is graffiti on your Waitrose-on-Sea! Although looking at the SS it was probably done c. 1975.
    Actually that's a relief and it means I can visit. I had been thinking that if I woke up somewhere so clean I would think I was in The Prisoner.

    1. Oh, I thought the SS was 88! I wonder what it stands for? Not THE SS, I hope...

    2. Well of course SS is used as a racist thing but there was a fashion for drawing that when I was at school and that was well before 1988. I don't know what it was supposed to mean and wouldn't be surprised if it actually was about the SS. As it happens I never had the patience to get it right.
      Six of one and half a dozen of another. I resign!

    3. The Schutzstaffel "SS" is drawn as lightening strikes. This is the "Cool "S"" Which is both ancient and modern at the same time. Kids in my high school used to draw it as well, although I'm a bit younger than you, but no one seems to mind because I have an old soul (again something both ancient and modern, huzzah!) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cool_S

  4. Such nice young punks to graffiti in chalk.

    Are those just big mounds of seaweed or did they bring dead things with them? Nevertheless, I'm glad I don't have to smell it! I have a very astute nose.

    1. Mostly seaweed, Melanie. Although, I did notice a few collapsing "raisin-ed" jellyfish, and no doubt there are other corpses amongst it all...

  5. I do enjoy your Drama Queen moments - stunning.
    Meanwhile - someone seems to be showing off with their ability to chalk penis inspired smiley faces, but the SS is rubbish, and could easily be confused with 88.
    Sx

    1. The Drama Queen moments are worth dragging myself out of bed for.

      Perhaps I should critique any further examples that I find? In chalk, of course.

  6. Love all your photos as per usual. Such a breath of fresh air. Very jell. That said... thanks for the Scissor Sisters song. That GROUP! I want to have an orgy with all of them. Such an attractive group. I want to do terrible things with each of them. Kizzes.

    1. The air was certainly fresh, but rather smelly because of that rotting seaweed (which is mostly all gone now, thankfully).

      Del Marquis for me!

  7. According to what Jon found, weed is the solution. I heartfuylly accept.

    1. I shall have it all scooped up and shipped over to you, Mago. I'd advise you to invest in a pair of nose-plugs for when it arrives, though...
