Lines drawn in the sand for Mother's Day message
EARLY risers were given another reason to smile this morning after a message appeared in the sand at Nielson Park Beach.
With a rake in his hand artist Peter Dinham spent one-and-a-half hours creating a sand mural "to put a smile on people's faces".
The symmetrical patten with the words "happy Mother's Day" on the foreshore could be seen from more than 30m away.
Jedda Dinham said her husband, whose company is called Wurri Rock Designs, often used his creativity as a tool for meditation.
"He just loves to do it and sit back and watch children try to create the same thing nearby," she said.
"It's not permanent and we like that."
Mrs Dinham said there was no planning in place when it came to designing the artwork.
"There's nothing in his mind until he is on the sand and it all just comes out," she said.
The couple from the Tweed Shire is staying in Bundaberg and said they often visited the beach at sunrise when the creations would take place.
"It was about 5.30am this morning and we realised it was Mother's Day and thought why not include the message," Mrs Dinham said.
