I did get a pic of the bar at the Hotel, where we had our evening meal (and yes William was there with us too).
and a sketch
I have to say that this hotel was lovely - in fact we hope to go back one day...it is definitely on our Return to List.
So, what to do when it is pouring with rain and the wind is getting up - well, we took to the car and travelled to Southampton and surrounding area. That way we could each take turns going into shops. I took the opportunity too of sketching in the car - what better occupation on a wet day...
we also met up with old friends for lunch in a pub, we got there early so I sketched - Again!
and on one of the wooden beams is a proverb :
in case you have trouble reading it, the proverb is:
"The church is near but the road is icy. The pub is far away but I will walk carefully"
*That just left our journey home, via Weymouth - and how lovely the weather improved for us:
for years there have been Sand sculptures along the sea front
- they have gone very high tech and house them in a sort of fiberglass hut:
and then we drove over to Portland and enjoyed the view...
and so on home
We had a wonderful road trip
I hope you have enjoyed the journey too.
