I hope all of you that were in the path of Hurricane Matthew are well with power restored and no damage. We were fine. When the power went out, we ate Krispy Kremes. No damage here, just much debris. The beach, however, is another matter. We lost the eaves on the house and 30′ off the end of our dock, but, as they said, it could have been much, much worse. There are many houses within a mile of us where the beach completely washed out under them. I don’t know how they can be repaired.
On a lighter note, it’s hard to believe we were in France just a few short weeks ago. When Carolyn and I left, the rest stayed another week. They took a trip to museums in Nice (where they enjoyed a meal at McDonald’s!), a winery and were invited to Mirielle’s house the last night for wine.
Some sketching went on, I’m told…and they had a visit from “J. Childs” – which I could not upload onto this site.
The very last night they were there, as they were coming back from Mirielle’s, they saw this amazing sight which Tish captured so beautifully in pastel.
Au revoir, France!
Cafe Sketching starts Wednesday so I’ll be back.
