Friendship?

Most years, weather and time permitting my best friend of many years and I walk along the beach ( about 4 miles ) from here..........( where they filmed Attonement) To here.................. Along the way we play the 'Fetish' game. First find a piece of twine, any will do but there's always a bit of a competition to find the best colour or the longest piece. Then gather bits to add to your twine....... the only condition is that it must have a hole in it so it can hang from your string!....OK I cheated with the fish but he was too good not to pick up!...obviously the stranger the find the better!.......I can't tell you how much fun and hilarity this annual trek causes.

Here's my 'found' objects
And here's what I did with them..... they hang in my garden as a constant reminder of a great day!
Looking forward to the next outing This is a tribute to a long friendship, not a usual challenge piece for LTDO but I like it!

What a wonderful game! I love walking along beaches (usually gathering stones and shels) - but we don´t have here many that kind of beaches...

This is lovely I like the sound of the game. Did you really find these items on the floor? Curiouser and curiouser as Alice would say

I'm wondering now if you have a bit of an obsession for dolls parts? Also did you stop for tea and cake? Fab hangy thing

Very inspiring and a lovely hanging for the garden. I never imagined there were so many interesting finds on our beaches, will open my eyes more in the future. Will you pass on my thanks to all who made me feel very welcome on Saturday at the crop.
