Very impressive, Jack. You're an artist in stone!

I thought you might be interested in this stone project, Jack. It was designed by a local artist and built by a group called Solas. They are a very successful group of people working together and walking and talking to promote their mental health.
The sofa is on the Back Strand at Falcarragh. I took the pics yesterday.

It really is better up here!

Strangely enough, it's quite comfortable! There are wooden boards (you can just see their front edges) for the bum and ditto as back rests and all at the correct angle for good sitting - I didn't teach ergonomics for years without being able to recognise a good seat when I see one!

Can anyone see my dog?

Is that the same as 'Fit for Purpose'? That's what was drummed into us and it is surprising how it is disregarded in modern product design. Today it is the Look of something that counts.

That seat does look quite comfy!

I'm going to go against the flow and despite the fact that it was built with good intentions by SOLAS, I think it's an eyesore. In fact as a broad generalization anything made of metal on a beach tends to stick out like a sore thumb. Sorry about that but it really does not blend in with the beach.

In fact you can walk along the beach and nearly not see it. It is on a rise a metre or two high at the foot of low dunes and is masked by marram grass.
And yes, it is an amazing place to sit! Views from Muckish to Errigal and out to Tory are hard to beat. As the main beach at Falcarrach faces due north and slopes very gradually, it is a spectacular place after a winter storm - huge surf. Lots of flotsam and jetsam too. I found a log full of goose barnacles there, once.
