Yes, Yellow Chair meets sand and salt water for a family reunion photo shoot. There were a few obstacles to overcome. I had to learn how to dig enough sand to level the chair-(after the kids learned they could tip the chair over- the fun was irresistible) but not too much sand to make it also unstable. Once the magic light time arrived and a slight breeze came up- the only challenge was how to edit it down to a manageable few! These kids were sun-kissed and happy from a day of play- simple smiles came easy- even for mom and dad. The Yellow Chair may be a little worse for ware-(note to self- tipping chair and riding it down the sand dune may be fun but does not extend the life of the chair) but nothing a little wood glue won’t fix.
