Full English Yoga

Manea Royal British Legion Club

I attended Yoga class this morning and arrived early...again!
I seem to do that a lot since keeping a journal, grabbing chances between appointments to lurk suspiciously in my truck with a pen and sketchbook in my hands.

After Yoga I decided to turn left instead of right for a change and headed towards Chatteris. Once reaching Chatteris I couldn't get Bluebell Cafe out of my mind, they cook THE best full English breakfast of any cafe I have visited...and I've visited quite a few. After being told all morning, in yoga class, to 'listen to my body' I decided I had no alternative but to indulge.
I'm sure my teacher will be very proud of me.

Blubell Cafe, DJ's Garden Centre, Chatteris.

Anita, I like your sketches. They are really nice. Good to see places around the world.
I have yet to try any sketch in public, but we're usually too busy shopping. We only get to town once a week....too far to drive as we live in the country.

What does a full English breakfast consist of?

I can't believe you can eat a WHOLE English breakfast!!! *L* deni.....;)

Anita Davies said...

Thank you Donn.
I'm in the country too but the nearest village is just 3 miles away. I know how daunting sketching in public can be for the first time, I felt the same, but once I started I couln't seem to stop. It presents such challenges and lots of free models!
I have lots more location sketches in my 2007 Location Sketchbook which is linked on the RHS if you're interested.

Ooooh, now then Jeanne....Mine consisted of:
2 rashers of bacon, 2 eggs, sausage, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread and butter...Yum!

Anita Davies said...

With ease Deni...With ease! LOL!

Hi Anita,
Aren't you good doing that lovely drawing and then yoga. You definately deserved a treat after that!

Claudia said... did absolutely right, Anita! And the visible results of your coffee shop visit are really good, too!

Anita Davies said...

My thoughts exactly Jess! LOL!

Anita Davies said...

Thanx Claudia!

Wow - sounds like such a great morning - and the weather was sunny ?(judging from the light in these sketches)
Wonderful drawings that are loaded with atmosphere. You must live i a wonderful place.
And I'm sure you worked off every bite of that breakfast in yoga class.

Love the soft blues and yellows....lovely sketches, Anita! It sounds like you had a nice time. I assume this is done in all yoga classes but my favourite part used to be the relaxing meditation at the end.
