Beach Combing - Driftwood

I took full advantage of the weather last Monday and headed straight for the beach. I took my daughter to Spey Bay on the Moray Firth Coast for a spot of beach combing. I needed some driftwood for some of my fishie creations and thought my daughter would also enjoy it. She loves to collect pebbles and she had a good time playing amongst them. It was a really sunny day, though a little blowy. Spey Bay is a pretty spot, but the beach isn't sandy, so there's no chance of relaxing and sunbathing. After collecting all our wood we headed to the Wildlife Centre. They have a good area for kids, where they can draw and colour sea creatures and watch wildlife films. They also have a coffee shop and simply couldn't resist one of their homemade cinnamon and raisin scones... absolutely delicious (and I still lost 2 pounds this week!!).

Driftwood Fishies

The photo above shows how I use the driftwood with my glass fishies. They look great on a windowsill and are nice and bright when the sun shines. I will be taking these to the Aviemore Trade Show as one of my catalogue items.
