Sketches for a new accordion book

I have decided to try and sketch what remains of some of the old buildings in the towns around me. So many are going and it is very sad.
These are very typical of older style buildings in Australian towns, well South Australian but you will find variations all over Australia.
Here we had very lttle timber so mostly they were built of stone, the Willunga one had a slate roof and probably a slate floor as there was a good slate mine at Willunga.
This project is slow, actually all my projects except the photos on my other blog are slow.
I seem to have slowed down a lot and it is annoying me. I know I am I supposed to be 'elderly' but dont want to admit it.
This morning I finally got to get my feet into the sea and walk the sands bare foot. The toe hasnt completely healed but this is part of the 'therapy'! It made me feel good, oh so good. I havent been able to do this since the end of last October.
