A life on the ocean wave…


My friend Jenny builds boats. Not ocean-going boats but small ones made out of driftwood and other bits of flotsam and jetsam she finds lying around on the beach. This is one she made for me. It is called the Lady J and it is very cute indeed!

She sells these boats at ‘The Cry of the Gulls’ Gallery in Fowey, Cornwall and in their new gallery (to open shortly) in Brighton. She is setting up a blog soon to share images and news about these lovely boats. I’ll keep you posted when it is up and running.

    Now that is an amazing thing to do with driftwood etc, I look forward to seeing her blog up and more pics.

    Next time I’m down near Fowey I’ll have to check out The Cry of the Gull Gallery, sounds fascinating :)

    It look awesome! Is the boat can float?

    They are very nice things indeed! All the boats are different and some are on stands like mine, others can be hung on the wall. They don’t float as they are almost two-dimensional.

    I like them because they are re-cycling a lot of stuff which would otherwise just litter up the beach!

    my son has a million boats in his bedroom… (he was a fish in his other life)……..I’m a sucker for boats of any kind….great idea to recycle too :)

    They are very cute! I would have liked to put more pictures of them in my post but I spent the afternoon helping Jenny set up her own blog instead! As soon as she has a few posts ready I will let you all know!

    what a great idea!

    if only i could have my own full size one….or perhaps eat something tasty that could shrink me to the size of a matchstick.

    here’s hoping

    Jenny who makes these boats is very lucky and has a full sized boat. I am very lucky because I know Jenny and we are going fishing in her boat on Saturday!

    What a cool boat! Will you let me know when she has blog up? I’d love to visit.

    I love your blog – it’s so yummy!
