A Hazy Day

The skies were quite hazy today and rain is a possibility in the next few days. It also was humid so we chose to be a bit lazy. After a leisurely morning we drove to Filberg Heritage Park to take a walk and check it out. The historic buildings were closed due to continuing cleanup after the four day seafood festival. However, the grounds were open for walking. We enjoyed the gardens and the views back across the bay toward our house. Jean did some sketching of flowers and I took photos.

After a brief stop for a few groceries we returned home. I decided to spend the afternoon doing some painting and reading. When painting I often have time between steps to let the paint dry and read a chapter or two. It works out to be a nice pace for both activities. Today I painted the same snail shells that I drew yesterday.

Late in the afternoon I managed to get in an hour of ukulele practice.

I will leave you with a message from the park.

 

 

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Wonderful! I see that your nature trip continues with real beauty around you. One of your pictures looks like a gigantic flower bouquet and it reminded me of Monet’s garden in Givenchy, when the flowers are blooming of course. Delightful.
    Of course, now I expect you to draw a picture of ‘cough stirrups’ as I cannot guess at what they might look like. Haha!
