Another Day, Another Question

24 What's the weirdest thing that you have ever seen at the seaside?

I have seen some very scary sights ... people who are in skimpy swimming costumes, who maybe should have left their normal clothing on!!

As to weird ... I can't think of anything at all. However the sculpture that I posted back in May I find weird. It is to commemorate The Normandy Beach landings of June 1944, but sadly I don't "get" modern art ... here it is if you missed the last time I posted it (and the explanation with it)

Comment of the sculpteur:
I created this sculpture to honour the courage of these men:
Sons, husbands and fathers, who endangered and often sacrificed their lives in the hope of freeing the French people.

Les Braves consists of three elements:
The wings of Hope
So that the spirit which carried these men on June 6th, 1944 continues to inspire us, reminding us that together it is always possible to changing the future.
Rise, Freedom!
So that the example of those who rose against barbarity, helps us remain standing strong against all forms of inhumanity.
The Wings of Fraternity
So that this surge of brotherhood always reminds us of our responsibility towards others as well as ourselves.
On June 6th, 1944 these man were more than soldiers, they were our brothers.


I love the reasoning behind it ... I just don't get the actual image
