We've had sunny weather for days now...so wonderful. For lunch yesterday I went to Auke Rec, which is only a 3 minute drive from campus (I timed it) it's a wonderful beach for picnicking and bon firing and kite flying while your dog runs about. I realized that I don't go "Out The Road" much (the road that leads out of town about 20 miles and then ends with a big sign that says "End of Road").
It runs along a beautiful set of beaches with amazing vistas and when I first moved here, friends and I used to go out to places like Auke Rec and Eagle Beach all the time. I realized that I want to do more of that this summer. Last summer I was invited out to a number of bon fires and camping trips and I declined them all to stay home and paint.
I never feel lonlier than when I'm walking down a beach by myself. Another pledge to not be quite so reclusive now that spring is on. I did take a couple snaps with my camera (as always) while I was eating my lunch. Those red dots in the first one are markers for people's crab pots. Yummy!
Today I'm washing linens and working on the trio painting. I've been having a tough time with it. I decided to keep the one musician as an upright base player, but (as someone suggested) have her looking forward more.
Oh yah, I got a reminder message from the city museum as well that I better get down there and start working on the piece I committed to doing. I'll start that tomorrow. I don't think I'll do fresco after all, I need to do something quick and easy. I'm completely tapped for ideas though. It has to be 12x12. Wish me luck!
