Never take a dog and a bear to the beach at the same time.


This little bear was made to blend in with the beach.


A piece of wet look mohair (hedgehog stuff) that hung in the cupboard for a very long time at the cottage waiting for the right moment or the right inspiration to be made into something apart from a hedgehog.. With our wet weather at the beginning of the Summer what else could be done, but make the mohair into a wet look, beach bear.


The bear had a hidden journey to the beach, as one of us, didn't want to be seen carrying the bear free style along one part of the beach where all the tourist gather. It must be a male thing.

.
The bear did have his head sticking out, now would I be that mean as to completely hide him away ?
Dolores will probably recognise the bag, as she sent it to me ages ago.
Here it's known as my Hermione bag, if you have ever seen the Harry Potter films or read the books, you will know Hermione has a particular bag that she could carry all her needs... Like wise...this bear is in a bag that, if needed could carry a kitchen sink. Thanks Dolores.


As the bear is a beach little guy it seemed only right to go to the beach at least once while he is with us.
Photographing the bear should have been easy, click and that's it. Not so easy when the bear had company.
I'll leave you with all the ruined photo's because someone else had to be in nearly every shot... Wonder who that can be ?







Never take a bear and Freya Rose Blossom to the beach at the same time.


As always our digging beach Queen can be found over at the Catflap Cavalier. We think she has dug away her sulks from the weekend when Jake went home.

What a lovely bear! I loved every picture!! I'm sure Freya was blue with Jack gone. When you get so much attention it's hard to go back to regular status.

Old Kitty said...

I'd be very proud to hold that beautiful bear for all the world to see!! No hiding in bags for lovely bear!!

Awww sweet Freya!! I thought for a moment you were going to bury the bear! LOL!!! Take care

Your pooch is so cute. My dog would have the bear drowned and torn half way apart at the beach... or she would be completely lost. She is getting better at listening, however. have a super day!

Joanna said...

Those last pics had me laughing out loud again. Midge, what a beautiful bear. You really are an artist. Is that a rock in Freya's mouth? She's too funny.

Well at least she didn't bury the poor bear in that hole.

They're both adorable.

Looked like Freya was preparing a shallow grave for her rival in the attention stakes! Gorgeous bear though!

Lynda (Granny K) said...

Yep! Gonna dig a hole and bury him! He's getting far too much attention from my mum. He even gets carried and I have to walk. Huh!

(lovely bear Midge!) xx
