Lily on lambwatch!
There are 100 Iron Men along 2 miles of beach; the furthest out to sea is over0.75 mile. Mostly, it's the Men closest to slipways & steps onto the beach that are adorned but others have been painted, rather crudely in most cases, and, this morning, one had a lifebelt around his neck! Not that he needs saving, of course
I love 'em, but you know that already. They act as mental & physical motivation: I pace myself by aiming for the next Man.
0645 5.3 rainy, windy miles through the coastal park & past the Marina before a wind-assisted section over smooth, firm sand, lately left almost glass-like in appearance by the receding tide.
