A couple of weeks ago we were able to make our first trip of the year to the Isle of Wight, a couple of weeks later than planned due to the bug mentioned in my last post. We chose an amazing weekend - not only was the weather great but the spring tides were as low as I have ever seen them, adding whole new areas of interest to the beach.
I just love walking on this ripple effect sand with bare feet (not in March though)
I am also in the process of trying to create a visual story of my family on the Island using a collaging approach with a mixture of information from vintage brochures and pictures of significant landmarks that I have painted, for example the Needles below.
I have used some artistic licence with regard to the number of stripes on the lighthouse - but this is how I see it in my head!
