‘Pink Paddle’ 2020
Although we were not able to paddle or meet in ‘bubbles’ for this end of season flower ceremony paddlers were able to meet virtually via video conference.
June chose to mark the occasion by decorating a sculpture which is a local landmark at Bare near Morecambe and has special meaning and memories for her.
The sculpture, Love, The Most Beautiful Of Absolute Disasters, popularly known as Venus and Cupid is a sculpture by Shane A. Johnstone which stands on a slight promontory beside Morecambe Bay on the eastern approach to Morecambe and commemorates the 24 cockle-pickers who died in the bay in 2004.
The artist has links to Paddlers for Life Windermere and has paddled with us in the past. See here.
So, for breast cancer awareness month and celebration of Paddlers for Life and breast cancer paddlers everywhere this is how the sculpture looked today.
June, Mags, Karen, Louisa and Collette decorated the sculpture.
Here are memories of times we were able to paddle in pink.
