We have some very talented people among our merry band including artists, potters, jewellery makers, well-being therapists for both physical and mental well-being. Below is the first of what I hope are many pieces that will be appearing here.
Double dippers Slothful grey and lying in bed Is it worth the effort? Am I feeling dead? But felt bouyed the previous evening Know that I will benefit from the feeling Dressed in damp wetsuit I drive to Sandown The main street depressing and wind-blown Gradually the dry robes begin to appear The hidden sea junkies are here! The wind is blowing and the waves crash It is Biosphere anniversary, we make a dash Cutting through the slaps of the grey green wash The international cruise ships lurk on the horizon watch The toes are freezing the call is nigh Slowly the girls in 50s costumes start to emerge thigh by thigh The chat on the beach is vibrant and alive Yep, the double dipping just does it, to make us thrive.
