A Little Break

I'm posting this very rough, quick sketch I did on a cold, wet, windy beach over the Easter weekend - just to say I'm still here, or at least I'm back. We went down to the Cape for a break with friends in their beach cottage, where we mostly slept, read, talked, ate and drank some lovely champagne. All in all a wonderful restful week in which I refused to feel guilty for not being more productive, a goal in which the appalling weather co-operated greatly! After that we went to Cape Town for the other purpose of our journey - a big 40 year reunion of our school matric class, which turned out to be a completely happy experience renewing old friendships and making some new ones.
Lots to do and catch up on now that we're back - I hope it's not too long before I have something to show you again here!

Marie, I'd love to pop in - we were up the other coastline in Arniston, then very full schedule in Cape Town, but one day...!
