Details from today

I didnt manage to sketch any boats today as it was far too hot but in the cockle train going over to the wooden boat show at Goolwa we were in the beautifully decorated centenary carriage and this is a detail of the light fitting. The little train rocks and rolls along from Victor Harbor to Goolwa, a lot of it next to the beaches we walk. Sketching is not easy.
When we arrived we caught up with some friends and had a morning coffee and then wandered off to look at all the things that were there, a zillion wooden boats, river boats, sailing boats, steam boats and a paddle steamer.
While waiting for the others to find us we found a table and I sant and sketched those who were around us, very quick ones but I still managed to sketch.
I now think I have a sun burnt back of my neck, it was very hot and sticky and not at all nice when the sun came out from behind the clouds.
Came home to find dear old Jake, my rescue home kelpie cross had died, I have been expecting it but he has defied the odds before but not this time.
May you manage to find lots of lunches you can steal in dog heaven. He was the best dog. I will miss him.

Oh Penny! I do hope he finds lots of chicken roasts he can "borrow".

Think a big hug.
