A look at a crazy piece of art.
We love the British seaside. Back in 2006 we got our first car and began travelling around the coast. That's where we caught the minigolf bug. Since then we've visited, and revisited, a lot of the UK's towns and resorts. From the big ones of Blackpool and Great Yarmouth, to classic spots like Southend-on-Sea, Cleethorpes and Skegness, to some lesser know places like Sutton-on-Sea and Maryport.
One of the seasides we visited on a road-trip back in 2008 Filey, North Yorkshire, where we played the 9-hole Ocean Drive Crazy Golf course.
|Minigolf meets art|
That course (and its BIG minigolf lobster) has been captured in a new piece of art by Leeds-based artist Jack Hurley (aka Loud Ribs) in his tongue-in-cheek, affectionate and characterful Rubbish Seaside 'Dystopia-on-Sea' collection.
You may recognise a couple of the characters in the piece too.
Check out the Loud Ribs website to see more of Jack's work.
|You can find me depicted on a coaster (among other things) at the Fabrication shop in Leeds|
Here's the blog post from our visit to the Ocean Drive Crazy Golf course in Filey. It was the 56th course played on our Crazy World of Minigolf Tour.
|Ocean Drive Crazy Golf course in Filey (June 2008)|
The Ocean Drive Crazy Golf course on the seafront in Filey has actually been removed and is being replaced by a new layout, so it's doubly nice that the old layout has been captured for posterity in Jack's art.
