Today was one of those perfect days.
The sun was out, it was wonderfully warm
(Mother Nature does not seem to realise
that it is nearly October, and I'm
certainly not going to tell her)
and Hope and I went to the seaside.
We visited the
My friend Tan (from the Booksy blog)
volunteers at Jerwood and very kindly
gave us some complimentary tickets.
Hope particularly wanted to go to the
Jerwood Drawing Prize Exhibition,
and it was really interesting to see all the
We also liked the
Quentin Blake exhibition
- his sketchbooks are wonderful!
is really varied with drawings,
paintings and sculptures in all different media.
Hope and I had a delicious lunch in the sunshine
on the cafe balcony - I had a brunch and Hope had
a crab sandwich - all under the watchful eye
of some rather large seagulls.
Before we set off for home we just had
to have an ice cream (it must be the law to have
an ice cream at the seaside, surely?!).
I won't need to eat for a week!
As I said, it was one of those perfect days.
Thank you so much for the tickets
and the recommendation, Tan!
ps This fella hitched a lift on the windscreen
all the way from Edenbridge to Hastings
(which took an hour and a half).
Once we parked up he shook his wings,
wiggled around a bit and flew off.
He will have been a long way from home!
He looked too big to be a wasp,
do you think it was a hornet?
