Two posts in two days? The weather must be good.
The sun is still shining here in beautiful Dorset, well not as I type at 10.30pm but it shone like mad earlier! We headed off to the beach again. It's funny how a bit of sun makes me go out and do stuff as I think I might not see any more this summer. This is summer enjoy it now. Make the most of it, it could be all over tomorrow.Let me introduce you to Nowhere Island. I hadn't seen the news and didn't know what this was until we arrived at Bowleaze Cove in Weymouth.
Nowhere Island is part of the cultural olympiad. An artwork by Alex Hartley made from arctic soil and intended to make people think about how they would create a new nation. This video tells the story.
Accompanying the arctic island is its travelling embassy. This hosted all kinds of arctic artefacts hidden in drawers and cases. It was beautifully curated and I wish I'd taken some more photos of the converted horsebox! The little jammers enjoyed counting polar bears in the embassy and were pleased to find at the end of the day their total of 41 was the highest.
The embassy was manned by Ambassadors who were so enthusiatic for the project the jammers signed up to become citizens of the island. They got to ring the bell
and got taught a special Nowhere handshake type greeting!
So if you're in the area take a look and see what you think. A waste of public money or something to make people think and smile?
It's here until 2nd August then off around the South Coast.More beach. More sun. More sand.
More hole digging.
Tomorrow... weather check... more of the same I think... it wont last long.
