I realized last night that I completely forgot to blog about my little mid-week outing! Christopher had to go get another, second (or is it third?) COVID test (finally negative!) and he dropped me off at C. B. Smith Park to pick me up a while later.
The park was open for the first time in a very, very long time. With it being the middle of the week, it was really empty and just windy, and lovely! When first entering, I took this photo of a squirrel on a bicycle. I think I’d seen it before but never taken a photo, it was such a cute and quirky thing:
I began to walk towards whatever might be a good spot to draw at. It was so calm. Iguanas and flowers everywhere.
Here’s a friend I met on the way. This installation is in front of Paradise Cove, the water park, which was closed, of course. There was an eerie feel to the water park, all empty and quiet like that.
It didn’t take me long to find a perfect spot by the water, in spite of some anthills under the table. I was careful with those and got all set up.
I finished one of the sketches I owed, which I posted the other day:
It was a lovely time even if I didn’t get to stay very long. Christopher was picking me up before I knew it.
