A real change in the weather. Sun, no wind, well not a lot, and a tad warmer.
My walk. On the Prom is quite a lot shorter than I would wish for. The cold air restricts my breathing. So I tire quickly. Today I went a bit further as it was so pleasant. Tomorrow promises the same so I would like to do the .59.
However today I had the pleasant experience of engaging in conversation with a woman I see almost every day. She plods to a bench on the esplanade and gazes out onto the sea. Today she called me over and asked me why I had the chariot so I explained. She then went on to say how much she had enjoyed last nights 80s thing put on by Children in Need. Had I seen it? No. And how she liked Aha a Norwegian group who were on last night from Norway. She had attended concerts in the 8os including two trips to Norway. This woman and I have passed each other every day almost for a long time then suddenly today she stops me and asks questions which I answer. And then chats away. Amazing. To connect. I have always respected her fixed gaze out to sea. If she looked at me, rarely, I beamed. Must have registered.
On my way back to the car this Rook flew up onto the railing. I got very close and he carried on posing.
May well be immortalised in a painting!
And these three Redshanks dont you just love 'em, well I do.
Back home and down the shedudio still reorganising and hanging paintings.
I had intended to group all the sea birds but then thought just get them up. Then tweak.
So a bit of a mis match, but they are up and far safer than strewn around. And there are more on the drawing board.
