Dim Sum tries to scratch off the sparkly tickly sand that stuck to her fur. She already tried to lick it off. Now she's got sand in her tongue too.
The front of the sign says "Beach Combers' Bar", which was created by Alex Bader (Studio Skye).
I have a second version of this that's blurrier, but I like the details here, so not too much DOF. The composition was a bit difficult to figure out, because I really wanted to show that sign. Then I got a nice shadow falling on the sign, framing the words nicely, but the shadow on the pole looked like a scary face :D , so I had to keep looking for just the right sun angle again.
