clay pipe bowl with talons
What beautiful weather it was this weekend! We just had to make the most of it, and go down by the river Thames, and it was beautiful down there. Plus, the tides were just right for a bit of squelching around in the mud looking for washed up bits and pieces. It never fails to amaze me what treasures are washed up each week. I found my best clay pipe bowl - with talons clutching it - I'm not sure if they are dragon or eagle, but they are very serious talons all the same! As we were almost running out of shoreline, we ended up searching around under one of the old piers, and noticed these old carvings which we have never noticed before. It looks like they've been there for some time.
day's finds, including some military spurs, and a charming yellow duck!
After feeding the seagulls, and feeling very thirsty due to slight over indulgence the evening before, we made our way to the Cutty Sark pub, where we indulged in a good couple of pints of beer and some sandwiches, whilst admiring our day's finds. Oh, and we like the Cutty Sark pub, because they let dogs in, and Mischa likes them too, as she got to hoover up the floor of chips and other bits of food dropped under the tables. Great weekend had. We even caught sight of our seal again briefly. Back to work tomorrow. bon courage all:)
