    ... Wharf. By now, the say has turned a little cooler and the sun was hiding behind a lot of cloud. We came across the grumpy sand sculptor, who must have been in the same spot for years. He was a little less grumpy today and after giving him a donation, we managed to take a photo of his work. We walked along the wharf and eventually tried for a decent cup of coffee at Moby Dick's.
