Today I went walking, well hobbling as my hip is still playing up, up the Willunga High Street and sketched this old house.
Willunga had a slate mine so a lot of the houses have slate rooves, although this one didnt and slate floors.
I like the old world look of the town but it is full of alternate clothing stores, although in the op shop I found two useful scarves for textile work.
I had a hard time walking so came back and sat in the car and read the paper while John had his meeting.
In South Australia we have what is known as gully winds when in the summer the winds roar down the gullies in the late afternoon, and it was one of those days. Walking up the hill into the teeth of this wind did not help.
