Papa Westray beach

Following a complex 2 day journey of plane, coaches and ferries we arrived at Papay.  

By Thursday we were ready to do some research.

The following were found on the beaches of the Island which we walked around today. We’re not sure what all of them are.  We will need to investigate the red jelly like  ‘glob’ in particular.

We found a small sandy beach with a gentle tide which is visible from the attic window of Papay’s art centre. Perhaps we will create a large Globster (or Eye of the Sea) and place this on the beach and then connect a webcam to a telescope in the attic and provide a live image of the Globster as it faces the challenging February sea and wind conditions. This could run throughout the festival.

Here’s a view of the beach and the attic. They are 300m apart.
