Wright Island

After a dreadful night and morning we finally got the cool change and the temperature dropped to 21 degrees, just makes you want to sleep! Any way in the late afternoon we went in for a walk along the road at the base of the Bluff to the jetty where we used to dive in the early days, then walked back and had a coffee.
I did a quick sketch of Wright Island, another diving haunt, from the new deck of the place we used to like but now its gone all modern I am not so sure about. Coffee could have been better too, but the view is stunning.

I'm so glad it's cooler for you now. What a dramatic change though! You are lucky being near the sea, though I suppose you don't get to it that often. I remember when I was a child my friends at boarding school thought I spent all the time at the beach when I was at home in Fiji - which of course wasn't true. Day to day chores get in the way.

An island - you are lucky!
We are back from a fantastic, wonderful weekend on the Sapphire Coast of NSW. Beautiful, really beautiful country. The wedding was excellent, really super. I'll write about it and post some sketches.

I am surprised you get it quite so hot when you are so close to the sea - this looks a cool pic.
