Bitterly cold but well wrapped up we headed by bus to Portland. The final stop was 'Avalanche Road' in Southwell from where we walked along the coast path towards Portland Bill lighthouse, stopping for lunch at the Lobster House Cafe and a pint at the Pulpit. Taking photos with gloves on was a bit of a challenge but necessary - so many different aspects of stone and sea to record. The beach huts were a bonus (actually on the cliff above the sea with no beach around, apparently they go for around £30K ! ) and I loved the rusty stone lifting wynches scattered around the landscape - they'll definately feature in a post of their own!
Tomorrow we'll be returning to the Tout Quarry Sculpture Park and Cove House Inn
A Conservation Biotechnologist by profession, in my 'playtime' I create art textiles inspired by the natural world. I am currently exploring ways of interpreting sketches directly onto fabric. Besides printing paintings and photos onto fabric using the computer, I am constructing densely quilted pieces overpainted with acrylic paint.
