Sadly no pictures, as when I was all prepared yesterday camera in hand, hung the washing out in bright sunshine, then a great wind came , half the Dawn Patrollers' T shirts headed for the North Sea, the sky darkened, hailstones as big as eggs, thunder, what is going on? (Well I took shelter down the shed.)
The Dawn Patroller managed to take photographs on his dawn patrol, (but then he has a better, far more expensive camera than I.) (and it wasnt raining, or hailing, or thundering.)
Well, I guess, life goes on. The Robin bellowing to his partner, or one he has an eye on.
The DP has been away this last weekend, down in Edinburgh. Moving youngest daughter from one flat to another, including two cats. Also enjoying himself at the RSPB Bird Fair. And taking grandchildren, sons of eldest daughter, on one of the days.
While he was away I kept the home fires burning. And did quite a bit of painting.
Our art session this week has been concentrating on pen and ink. I have now an obsession with Gannets.
All done in pen and ink. And more to come!
Our part of the world has the largest onshore Gannetry at Troup Head. The Gannets nest there each year. Troup Head is an RSPB bird reserve and you can see it from the cliff, but also from the sea. A fantastic sight.
So long as the weather does not portend an apocalypse should be a good season. And only six weeks or therabouts to Midsummers Day.......
