Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday, Ruby Tuesday, Midweek Blues / Playday at the Beach


 
I took my little grandson to Seal Beach last week.  
He really liked playing in the small sandy playground.
I love it when he gets "really" dirty!  
He has sand all over his face...
Some people were eating nearby, which was the same as throwing the welcome mat out for the pigeons and sea gulls to arrive right on schedule!
Little Chase was delighted!
I noticed the hand crafted tiles that lined the short wall of this playground,
which were obviously created by children of various ages...
and, a few adults.

  
  
and, I did just that...It was a beautiful sunny February day at the beach!

  
and, this was just too cute to pass up!
The dates indicate these tiles have been hanging in there for a few years.

From the big smile I would guess Chase was having a great time at the beach. He is just adorable. I love the painted tiles.

Love the gull lurking in the background! Cute photo :) I've always liked the handmade tile thing. The Nature Center I used to work at has a lot of walls lined with tiles like that. Always adds a nice touch!

Your grandson is cute! The fine sand makes for a fine playground, and even the pesky gulls look sedate as the watch the boy at play - before their incessant begging for food again...

The artwork is fun, the bold red a fine contrast to the sepia sand. Kids of all ages painted these pieces so nicely!
