Rainy summer




I feel for the visitors down to Cornwall this year. Apart from some glorious weather in early Summer, it's been unpredictable, showery, windy and dull, with the occasional fabulous day just to tease you. It's fine if all you want to do is get wet anyway in the surf, but pretty grotty if you want to sit on the beach. Beach visits are cut short by mischievous showers and the escape back to the car to sit in fug with damp gritty sand between your toes is unattractive. Especially when the last one off the beach has the car keys!

Still, one day the sun will reappear and when it does........



There's fun for young........


And younger!


Just a few old sketches......trouble is when I go to the beach, it's in a wetsuit with my board, not my sketchbook. I must rectify that on the days I don't surf.

Love these sketches Sue! Today was one such day wasn't it? A grey and wet start blossoming into a beautiful afternoon. No surf though! Lesley x

So lovely. The girl at the bottom is wonderful - just like being on the shore after a surf, warming up and drying off, but avoiding going home.

Perfect!

These moments are the ones that are so easy to miss, but are the ones which are so special.
