Had a lovely friend from Dorset staying with us for the past 3 days and never had a moment to get out my sketchbooks or work in the den/studio. We talked art most of the time, as Grace also paints and is currently working on portraits of family members. Sunny Wed we spent in the garden enjoying the afternoon sun. Thursday was very busy with visit to Wild Life Trust floating centre at Ranworth Broad. Also very interesting time as Grace is tracing her family of Cators (on her mother's side) and we found references in churches in Woodbastwick and Ranworth. In the afternoon we visited Hickling Broad and Wild Life Centre and walked for hours before coming home via the windmill at Sutton.

Today Grace followed me 35 miles across country up to Wells Next the Sea for a visit and we parted mid afternoon for her to carry on to Kings Lynn to her sons and me to get home after visiting The Big Blue Sky Gallery.

Sorry no photos even to show you yet and tomorrow meeting up with friends in Cromer to visit some of the local Norfolk Open Studios - this being the first weekend. Hope to get back to normal next week.

Glad you liked my chitchat about Grace and my local trips here in the Broads.
