I love living by the sea – the sound of the constant ebb and flow of the tide, a refreshing breeze and a fabulous smell of seaweed! It’s a very steep climb down to the harbour from our croft house – one that is now getting easier after many daily painting trips to the shore and back. I’ve not yet mastered painting the little fishing boats – but I shall keep trying (I’ve sold two of my seascapes this week, which delighted me!). Unlike my walking muscles, my cycling ones don’t seem to be getting fitter, so I’ll be taking my bike out a bit more, to find some different views to paint. On one of my cycling trips I was offered some crabs – “oh lovely” I said, “I’ll take them home in my panniers”. I hadn’t really though that one through and was persuaded not to do that, but the idea caused some amusement!
