I had an early start and a staff meeting
at my grown up job this morning.
I decided to have my walk and clear
the head before coming back to Arundel.
If you have never been to Climping,
it's just down the road from Arundel.
About 10 minutes drive.
We used to go there regularly to walk along the beach,
when my son Jay was small and we had a
very exuberant Afghan hound.
Its changed a little over the years and now boasts a car park
with a barrier and the charges that go with them.
On the other hand there are now decent toilets and a little cafe.
The great thing about the place is it's a picturesque little country village,
one road in, one road out, with the beach at the end.
It was blowing a gale down there.
Any cobwebs, from any meetings,
were well and truly blown away
|This house reminded me of real 1960's English seaside houses|
|This twisted metal looked like sculpture|
|I walked along to Elmer...there's quite an assortment of different architecture...|
this put me in mind of beach houses in Carolina
|this is a typical little English Country pub|
|The Black Horse pub down Climping's main street...actually, I think its the ONLY street|
|Bailiffs Court and Spa is a gorgeous hotel and is a favourite local wedding venue|
So...back to work at home on a couple of pieces of furniture
|here is the butterflies chest I've been working on.|
Yesterday I put on the craquelure and today I'm varnishing
It's coming together rather nicely.
If you want to learn to do all this ,email me as I am starting some workshops next month
Hope your day is going well and you've managed to blow all your cobwebs away too.
