Our visitors left at the beginning of the week and it is taking me some time to return to my normal routines (if my routines can ever be described as normal.) It was so great having our lovely relatives to stay and to show them the sights. It was a shame that it rained most days they were here, although the garden certainly enjoyed it. But being from the UK our visitors endured it with the good spirits of rainy weather veterans. Of course the moment they boarded the plane the sun came out and has continued to shine all week. The above photo was taken around noon today while walking along the coast to a cafe for lunch with a friend. Yes, I have been catching up with friends this week instead of painting. The weather today was To. Die. For!!
I also couldn't resist boasting (whoops - posting) about my sister's book that has just been published called The Lost Art of Room Travel. She wrote this over a period of 18 months while semi-housebound with ill health. I'm very proud of her.
