Waiting for a little night music!
The sun starts to set on FIESA, in the Algarve

I recognise that frown!
Not so sure about this?
With a swish of her skirt!
What ARE they thinking?
Disapproving of Willy Wonka?
It’s Show Time!
Songs from the musicals
What? What did I say?
Not late again!
Such a sad Pierrot
Serenaded by Angels
And a mournful Geisha
I’ve visited the International Sand Sculpture FIESA, at Pera, several times, but never in the evening. This Summer I arrived just as the sun was starting to fade. At first I wandered, nodding and smiling in recognition, and admiring the craftsmanship. Choosing favourites. Gradually the sand sculptures took on colour. Just a spotlight or two at first.
Time to sit in the cafe with Laurel and Hardy, and wait
For the colours to deepen
Enhancing the drama
With a smile or two
And a frown!
Don’t knock the d-j!
Or the world’s greatest rock band
I imagine you’ve guessed that the theme this year is Music. FIESA started in 2003 and runs from late March till October each year, so if you happen to be in the area, you just have time! Full details are on the link.
Hope I’ve kept you entertained for a little while. Have a great weekend and don’t forget to join me on Monday for a walk. Better just pop in on Cate first, with your Six word Saturday.
‘Seaton celebrates’ was a big success!
The sand pies were quite big too (and happy!)
A certain lady was hard at work on the sand sculpture
And there were a few other crowd pleasers too!
I loved these ladies so much! Maybe a new Gravatar?
Meanwhile my t’ai chi group ‘worked the beach’
And there was all the usual ‘fun of the fair’
These were my daughter’s favourites when she was small
There were ‘goodies’
And craft stalls galore!
And it was great weather for kites!
Just look what this little girl got to take home on the bus!
All in all, a good day! The sun shone gently down. Mike led the t’ai chi group into the water and my ‘crops’ got soaked! A good time was had by all. Just one omission! I forgot to go back for a ‘finished’ photo of the sand sculpture. It must have been the lure of the icecream.
Have a happy weekend, won’t you, and don’t forget to visit Cate at Show My Face. You only need six words!
