Now back home after a couple of days away on the isle of Lindisfarne. Chilly north wind with sleety showers, but also sunshine and glorious views. For the first time in a couple of years I managed to dabble with my watercolours and did three small paintings. The virtues of the island were extolled as peace and quiet, though I felt that it was just as quiet down here in rural north Suffolk. More seagulls though, and salt spray, and a view of a castle instead of a round-tower church. All in all, a quite refreshing short break.


  1. Lovely watercolour! I've been to Lindisfarne once. There are very old vibrations there. I loved it. It was of course cold even in July.

  2. Sorry you could pop in on the way there or back.

  3. Except I went by train and didn't drive ....
