01:07:14 Painting by the beach

Today was a lazy day. It started with sticking a tray of ham + cheese croissants in the oven while we got dressed. We packed them in a bag along with our towels and walked to the local beach. Breakfast was eaten on a picnic bench next to the sea. It was idyllic. For a day that started out at 1°C it warmed up to a respectable 17°C by mid afternoon. 

As a teenager I bought myself a Winsor & Newton travel watercolour set. It holds a dozen small pans of colour and is small enough to fit in my pocket. Twenty something years later and Rhiannon was starting to "borrow" it so I bought her her very own version for her birthday in April. Today we brought the two sets and some paper with us and spent a couple of hours sketching and painting the sea, some random plants and stones that caught our eye. 

This is the beauty of holidays. A chance to do the things we never seem to do in our normal day to day life. No chores, no work, just time for fun!
