At first I was thinking: Oh boy, what a crappy theme. This really can't get any worse (except HALO maybe ;)). I mean: sand? I hate it. But then my son came up with an idea...Of course a beach is boring but it 's what lays underneath that brings in the fun! So there you have it!
As this is a beach theme, I wanted to do this the "Ocean" way. I'm not gonna tell to many stories, and let the pics do the talking. As in the immortal words of K. Goldman: You control the action!
The front of the beach thing.
The crappy back. My basic yellow and bleu went in to this, all of it. Everything with a straight side was in the game.
All there is to do on a beach is making sand castles,
but there's more than meets the eye.
No this isn't Bones. It's his grandfather.
WW II ammo.
"Say what? Landmines?? On the beach?! Yeah sure, I'll be carefull! Thanks for lettin' me know!"
Things that, for some strange reason, can get lost in the sand.
A fossilised Legosaur!
On to the action on the water. I don't have Lego skee's, this is the closest studless thing I could come up with.
The boat and skee 'r are connected with an iron wire. I tried Lego wire but it went all curly wibly wobly and... ahum, oh well, next pic...
Underwater action. My kinda stuff!
Barrels of toxic waste, all beaches should have them! My whole stock of pink went into that leak ( there's a joke in this one, I just know it!).
Okky is hungry...
4th wall blabber.
Thanks to my son for his mermaid and his shark. I resisted on attacking his yellows, me good boy now. Credit for his idea too. Much inspiration came from ShannO's vignettes.
Here's an UFO I tried to include at the bottom of the sea, but two things held me back:
1 There's no way you can build round that silhouet.
2 I realised I made some of these before, and that's not allowed to be used.
Let me know what you think, and thanks for stopping by!
