Another lovely day! I woke myself up coughing just before the church bells started! No chance of a lie in today!
We sorted ourselves out and headed to the Burton Art Gallery at Bideford. We have just become members (friends!) of the gallery and wanted to book on a day course learning to do woodcuts. Unfortunately the course is full, but there are enough people in reserve for the tutor to run another event if she wishes. We added our name to the list and hope she decides to do another.
While we were there we took amok around. There is a wonderful exhibition by Leonard Ruskin – lots of fabulously funny crows!
I just love those hairy knees! I love crows – magnificent, clever and social birds – and the subject of three of the books I have written for NaNoWriMo! Can’t beat a good crow story!
Having topped up with coffee at the Cafe Du Parc we headed to Westward Ho! beach. A lovely walk and a treasure hunt for ‘found art’. Don’t laugh! It’s a whole industry down here! We found some interesting burnt wood with nails in that I have turned into this –
A great branch and tin can –
And a whole bag of small bits of plastic – which necessitated us calling at Sainsburys on the way back for a giant vase!
I’m thinking we need to rename our house to ‘gallery’ and start our own exhibition! 🙂
Dinner was baked salmon that I marinaded in soy sauce, orange juice and rind, chopped red chillies and two chopped balls of stem ginger. Lovely!
Time to chill now as work madness starts again tomorrow.
Have a great evening and marvellous Monday!
