Nigel’s Changing Role …….

IMG_1953Nigel’s role so far this holiday has been chief sandwich sandcastle maker, however, today Iris changed tack in her requests and wanted to be a mermaid on the beach  …….
IMG_1956…… decorated with seashells and stones.
IMG_2033Naturally Nigel has taken this request very much to heart …….
IMG_2032……. and I have to say, his efforts became more and more realistic as day went on, in fact I sort of half expected to see Iris’s tail to give a little mermaidy flip now and then.
20170507_161837Nigel did manage to get the odd five minutes rest here and there when I offered to take over for a while, but young Iris is a very discerning young lady, and she was soon demanding that Uncle Nigel return, because “Uncle Monkey is rubbish at mermaid tails!”  What is she like?

A mermaid tail is one way to get Iris to sit still and relax for a while.
