Just returned for the evening to our 'home -from-home' cottage in Weymouth after a tasty fish supper of local plaice at the Chesil Beach Visitor Centre, accompanied by golden views as the sun set
This was first place we went to on Tuesday for a leisurely lunch overlooking the constantly changing colours and shapes of the Fleet Sandflats ( as featured in one of my quilts) One of my favourite places anywhere, I never tire of it.
Well fed and watered , we went into Weymouth for some shopping ( Dorset Red cheese and a new rucksack) , watching all the dogs being walked on the beach (they're not allowed on in summer so make up for lost time in the winter)
Wednesday we visited our friends in Wellington, very early start but lovely to see them ( could have done without the delay at Castle Cary tho')
Roman Town House and lunch at the Blue Raddle.
In between walks and eating, not much stitching has been done but I've painted several 'thumbnail' watercolours the proportions of this years journal quilts to develop design ideas
I've also just had fun experimenting with recording the variety of weather conditions and looking out of the bedroom window attempting to capture the colours of first light over Portland
