Xmas Wreath from Flotsam

There are now two beach cleaning groups in the Bude area, who meet regularly to clean the beaches of the myriad of plastic that appears on our sandy shores. A previous post describes this beautifully with a lovely message called the Starfish Story. Winter seas wash in much more as the stronger currents throw the debris up onto the high tideline. Over the last couple of weeks I have been collecting scraps of fishing net and ropes with the idea of creating a Christmas Wreath. I have been amazed by the variety of colour. The very tangled pieces were perfect to form the shape of the wreath using the rope to keep it all in place.
