Where better to see animals than while you're scuba diving?  And where do you scuba dive but at the beach?  So here's the freind's beach - it maybe small, but (unfortuantly) I had to stick within the 16x16 stud limit (the shark overhangs a bit, but only about 1 stud, although due to the angling of the sharks body it looks like considerably more.)  Unfortuantly I wasn't able to incorporate any distinctivly "friendly" colors here (no friends sets :sad: ), I hope that doesn't matter.

And this is the place where they are about to go scuba diving.  Four animals here, although I think it would really have been better if I could have expanded it another 10 studs or so. . .

And here are the various things that theythought were nessecary on a scuba diving excursion - lets see, diving gear, a bottle of sun lotion, folding chair (I guess some of the friends will stick with swimming above water), also a pie and a basket of fruit (looks like the last two articles are in some danger!).  Oh, and of course an umbrella!

Looks like the friends have hit a jackpot!  At least, if they can get past the shark. . .

Took me a while to get a wave I was satisfyed with, so I played around with the different style blues.

Nice entry! You did a good job packing lots of detail onto a relatively small base. Neat work with all of the layering, too. :thumbup:

I like the different layers of water and land and I simply love the little details such as the sand castle, the treasure and the beach picnick stuff. Definitely a nice way for Friends to feel at home. :thumbup:

I also adore the way you used the green flag piece as the back of the folding chair. Great job!

I know I always browse through various Brickshelf-folders for inspiration. Maybe you could do the same.
For example: If you need to create a wave (or various waves, for that matter), you can take a look at this. I hope this helps. :wink:

Thanks!  That might come in handy for a future wave!  :thumbup:
