William Shakespeare at the beach in honour of the people of Christchurch…..and a plaque that explains more

Those of you who have been reading my blog for some time will remember my posts( here, here, here and here) about the brick-work installations along the sea walls at Plimmerton Beach.

Russell Plume created these quotations from the works of William Shakespeare from pieces of brick that wash up along the beach.

This quotation was installed on a sea wall earlier this year and alongside it now is a plaque explaining the purpose of this particular installation.

As beach walkers pass by and read the quote and the explanation I hope their thoughts and good wishes will turn to the people of Christchurch to support and encourage them.

There is a Facebook page here for more photos and information to like and share.

Letter box art and the Rugby World Cup

Passionate, crafty All Blacks supporter

I have just been for a walk in our neighbourhood and noticed lots of decorations supporting the Rugby World Cup that is happening in my country at the moment.

Car flags, flags in windows, messages sprayed on house windows are commonplace but this letter box art took the prize today I felt.
