We didn’t actually leave the Lake District until Saturday, but I got ahead of myself (or behind!). Other trips during the week included a boat cruise on Derwent Water, a ferry trip to Windermere – where I had to buy some warm weather clothes, It’s gotten very hot, but, of course, nothing like Florida!
Thursday Gary and I went to the British Open in Hoylake just outside Liverpool. It involved a 3-hour car ride there, a long, long walk to a bus ride and another long, hot walk into the golf course. We were told “no photos” so I left my camera in the car. When we had our lunch of fish and chips, there were loads of people with i-pads and i-phones… I didn’t realize they meant no photos of the golfers! So my sketch is all there is!
Friday we stayed home, had a lazy day. Gary watched the Open on BBC, and I went outside to paint the flowers around our beautiful grounds. I used my watercolor pencils with my water brush and this delightful little case Dale came up with. It’s made from 2 pill bottles with the top cut out of one. She should patent this idea.
Next post will be from Devon/Cornwall. Stay tuned.
