The Magic Blanket

A sunny beach with a man in the foreground, a board marked ‘Lifeguard’ on its stand in the middle ground, and a surf in the background with seagulls at the edge, in the shallows, and flying. The man is bent over to spread a blanket on the sand, but the wind has filled it so that it puffs up like a solid thing hanging in the air. The man wears a black t-shirt and cap, and grey cargo shorts.
