So no shop but several plans. Our kitchen project home is drawing to an end of the fitting stage and the electrician was here for most of the day. We started with a trip to the recycling centre with items from the old kitchen and quite a lot of cardboard packaging.
Off towards Studland along Shore Road when we saw a friend and her dog so a stop for a chat. Also saw kayakers setting out further up the bay.
Then a stop on Ulwell Road for some photos to help one of the commissions I am working on at present including this view back to the bay.
Our aim was Studland and Knoll beach – we started with a cafe visit and drank our coffees outside – most of us were distracted by the Sea King helicopter over near Old Harry and Ballard Downs. It was not clear if a rescue was taking place.
I paddled my feet in the water – sea sculling is an activity I still want to try at some point. We then returned along the shore past Knoll beach NT and on as far as the Naturists sign and back. There were some dogs and owners enjoying the freedom of the beach and some walkers. I was as usual the only one paddling their feet.
Then some shopping for books for me linked to OS maps and walks across Dorset. We then returned home, my energy levels were flagging so I decided kayaking wasn’t a good idea.
I audited my markers at home – 134/201 possible colours plus some spares to take to the shop tomorrow. Then the first meal cooked in the new kitchen.
This evening we went up to The Scott Arms in Kingston near where we used to live at Hillview for the opening evening of Josh Hollingshead’s art exhibition. They have exhibited a wide range of his pieces including ones that we haven’t seen before. It was great to see Josh discussing his art with people and looking so relaxed – honoured to be friends.
Home and relax time.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-6816-61aff4b42c31e' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=6816&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-6816-61aff4b42c31e' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-6816-61aff4b42c31e' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
