So choosing not to walk, I went fishing with Nigel, taking everything but the kitchen sink, 3 books( one Italian language, bird spotting book and the latest novel that I'm reading) watercolour paints, sketch book, binoculars, picnic and a rug oh I forgot camera of course, I do so like to travel light! and not get bored. Sitting next to the river enjoying the sunshine, I kept a good look out for a Kingfisher, but it was the grey wagtails that caught my attention, and the swallows catching the thermals, but I did think that I caught a flash of the Kingfisher and heard it's distinctive chirp.
Drove down to Grasmere to see the art exhibition this morning, it looks good there was an artist from Windermere that I had not seen before her watercolours were lovely and fresh with lots of white paper left. I came back to the Keswick Museum exhibition to find that my 'bowling' painting had sold yippee, it is a fantastic feeling
