Cottesloe Sculpture By The Sea
The 2011 "Sculpture by the Sea" was staged at Cottesloe Beach, Western Australia. The exhibition was featured from the sea wall all the way along the sand towards North Cottesloe and on the surrounding grassed areas creating a beautiful sculpture park. Smaller exhibits were displayed indoors at the Cottesloe Surf Lifesaving Club. Because I was having a "free day out", the $10 asking price for a Catalogue was not within my budget. Therefore, I have not added given titles to the sculptures so the viewer can use their own imagination and interpretation. Interspersed between the photos of the sculptures are scenes of interest taken as I walked around the Cottesloe area.

Forrest Street Norfolk Pines. Visible today from Rottnest Island, Cottesloe's magnificent Norfolk Island pines were originally only 18 inches tall. First planted along John St in 1905 by local residents William Zimpel and John Doscas, the seedlings were hand-watered for 3 years and protected from roaming sheep and cattle by picket fences. Thanks to the 2 men's efforts, only 2 of the 168 trees planted did not survive, and today the pines are featured in the Town of Cottesloe's official logo.
