Ozone Hotel Kingscote

This is the old hotel on the sea front, we stayed in the new part which has only been opened for a few months. A lovely old style pub but I was glad we were in the newer bit. I tried to get an idea of what the wrought iron on the balcony looked like but I had a few problems actually seeing it so lots of crossing out.
I also think I am having problems with getting my sketches straight on the scanner.
It is raining hard this morning, wonderful to hear it although it is freezing cold.
I have Tabby's dog Spot staying and yesterday he disapeared from the area by the back door and there was a panic on but he re appeared quite happily an hour or so later. So he missed out on a walk. I am walking while I am doing these Kangaroo Island sketches.

Wow! What a grand hotel! I love the way you were able to capture it, Penny -- something very difficult for me to do! And the closeup of the grill work -- super!

The cast iron is tricky to draw but has lovely shapes. Maybe white against black would work too.
You have had wild weather lately too I expect?

I love this style of architecture with the balconies and cast iron.

The Ozone is a lovely old pub... not so sure about the new annex however! We love the view across the bay from the front steps and our aged King Charles Cavalier (Ollie) adores the calm beach. I like to collect the smooth coloured green and clear glass which gets washed up in copious amounts. Not sure what I will ever do with it though.
