A nice idea, but…

Friday 15. 06. 18 Here is another one from our trip. This time it is a monoprint of the Dutch landscape overprinted on my journal plus our friends in acrylic. Unfortunately it didn’t work!

Captain’s dinner

Wednesday 13. 06. 18 This is a sketch of our dinner on the last night aboard the Fluvius. The ‘Captain’s Dinner” was 5 courses instead of the usual 4 but it was rather disappointing. The one redeeming feature was free wine!

Amsterdam to Bruges

Wednesday 30. 05. 18. Just back from a boat/bike tour with Julia from Amsterdam to Bruges. We rode about 50 km everyday and returned to the boat each night. The bike rides were with a guide and were mainly through the countryside although we did pass through Antwerp and Ghent. Each night we returned to the boat for dinner and to sleep. After the trip we spent the weekend in Bruges and then took the train back to Amsterdam from where Julia flew back to Toronto and I to France. The weather was good throughout the ride except for one morning when it rained. The Dutch style bikes were excellent and very comfortable. We even tried e bikes for a day.

London

Wednesday 02. 05. 18 Just back from 5 days in a damp, cold London. Saw some interesting expos, the highlights of which were the Degas show at the National Portrait Gallery and the David Mine at the Dulwich. Also did both Tates and the Saatchi. The Tate needs to get its act together as all the shows there were so overcrowded – they need to get timed attendances organised. The James Cook Voyages at the British Library was also very good. Besides that enjoyed some bitter, sausages & mash and fish & chips.

The photo is a sculpture on the platform at Brixton.

Le printemps est arrivé

 

Tuesday 17. 04. 18 I rode to Meze today as it was warm 25 degrees and sunny. People were sunbathing and even in the sea! It was warm enough to ride the scooter without a jacket so I’m hoping that Spring is here, finally.
