If you haven't spent much time at the beach along the lagoon in Colwood lately, now is a wonderful time to go. A section of the beach has become an incredible art gallery walk.

Local artist, Paul Lewis, has created a driftwood menagerie that is well worth a visit.

It all started with McGnarly the Beach Ent, who was brought to life by Alex Whitcomb of Drifted Creations at Colwood's Eats & Beats at the Beach event last summer. He's said to be the guardian of the lagoon and protector of the birds and small creatures.

And now, thanks to Paul Lewis, McGnarly's small creatures seem to have gathered around.  

He started with the eagle...

Followed by the raven...

And the owl...

Then came the geese...

And the heron...

While you are here, check out the Mammoths at the Royal Bay Beach Park!

Come spend some time in the fresh ocean air at the beach and see this wonderful artwork. Be sure to tag @CityofColwood in your photos on facebook, instagram and twitter to be featured on the City's accounts!
