I’ve been walking longer each time I go out on the beach. Now I am down past the surf club and back.That is about 8 markers each way so a little over an hour’s walk. There are always a few out and about when I am there, particularly around the club, where the surfers and paddle boarders like to play.
The good thing about moving countries is that you get a whole new set of magazines to investigate. I picked up an Art Guide in the local newsagent and have been flipping through. There are lots of interesting exhibitions on around the country. I could draw art from them individually but why do that when I can put all my favourite bits on one page?
But wet feet in a good way, I went for a walk along the beach in the morning sun and was enjoying the outgoing tide. There were quite a few people about, walking their dogs or generally having fun on the beach. There was a lot of seaweed floating in the outgoing tide, so I used my rubbish Samsung to get a few snaps for colour and shape purposes.
Did I mention that I treated the folks to a evening of wine and food at the new(ish) wine bar in Point Lonsdale? It’s a lovely place called “Noble Rot” and we had a great time, though next time I would like not to be the designated driver so I get to sample more of the delicious beverages. Chances are we will be going there again.
Today we walked from the surf club along the tracks to Barwon Heads to have a coffee in the kiosk. It’s a lovely and easy walk, and we did detour along the beach for a little while. Once at the kiosk, I sat at the top by the jetty and sketched the boats and view of Ocean Grove stretching down the coast. Then on the way back I attempted to draw some of the surfers that were out catching waves on the incoming tide. It was a lovely afternoon.
