Walrus Beach

Going to the Beach

Going to the Beach

Constance felt that she was spending too much time on line walrus-watching, and decided to go for a head-clearing walk to the beach. Opal and Agathe are always game for a trip to the beach! They grabbed their brand new beach blankets, and trotted along behind.

It was Constance’s lucky day!  She found a wooden fishing float washed up and lying in amongst the sea wrack.  Old-growth cedar fishing floats were common flotsam and jetsam about 40 years ago, but now are rather rare!

She decided it made a great perch, and sat on it gazing about…

Constance has walruses on the brain.  She definitely has been walrus-watching too long – now she thinks she sees them everywhere!!

Deciding that exercise would help clear the hallucinations away, Constance enlisted the walrus-girls – er – block twins to help her roll the fishing float home!

  1. I trust that Constance’s head got cleared after that refreshing jaunt. The walrus population seems to be aplenty in your area.

  2. What a delightful day for beach-combing and exploring. It’s no wonder they were tired! Your photographer is certainly talented. The photos are superb!!

    • Hi Ann – just so you know and because the Quimper Hitty human doesn’t like to blow her own horn, these are all her photos, as is usually the case. It is only occasionally that I take photos for her to use. I think that usually she takes better Hitty photos than I do, as she has a more sympathetic eye for their view of the world than I ever will, and they are more inclined to hold just the right pose when she is doing the asking.

  3. I wandered off to the Walrus cam (following the link at the bottom of today’s post) and was astonished to find my sprits bubble and rise into laughter. I was primed by Quimper Hitty’s entry today, but had expected Constance’s addiction to be the result of mesmerising tedium – not so! Now I know what was actually meant by “Not a lot seems to happen, but the girls are amused and strangely fascinated.” The hallucination was also made even more amusing: I could just imagine how Opal and Agathe were moving – or not…

  4. what a funny funny entry in the Quimper chronicles. I so enjoyed the block twins basking as Walruses. Poor Constance. I hope that she recovers from her Walrusitis.

  5. What an absolutely delightful post, and a lovely time on the beach was had. What a great little wooden fishing float Constance found, I am sure that will be put to good use.

  6. I was waiting for the other shoe (or tusk) to drop…I just knew there would be a walrus-encounter on the beach! Didn’t expect such a cute one, though – the beach blankets are adorable! We used to love to search for the Japanese glass floats on the beach when I was little…like treasure.

  7. Always an exciting adventure – for the girls to spend time at the beach…….Constance has walruses on her wooden mind !!!!
