Joan, Harry and I started our second day in Coltishall with a short walk to the river bank, met up with Clive (Joan's husband) and lunched outside The Rising Sun pub and Granary Restaurant, sun shining and the calming sound of river water close by.
The prawn cocktail looked amazing and it almost killed me to sketch it rather than eat it immediately!
Clive was our Captain, although Harry did swap seats with him for a while and did a wonderful job as I sat at the back of the boat and tried very hard to sketch all the beautiful things whizzing by.
We arrived back at the boat yard bang on time and I managed a quick sketch of our boat before we headed back to Joans.
After a delicious Chinese meal, which I devoured without sketching, all 3 of us took a walk up to the old ruin 'St. Theobalds' at Great Hautbois. We were fortunate enough to be there as the sun went down and cast it's golden light onto the oak trees and wild Foxgloves that surround it. Such a beautiful place to be with two people I care so much about.
Totally worn out we all retired a little earlier than I usually would but I still managed a quick sketch of the contents dressing the pine chest of drawers in the bedroom before finally putting the lamp out and falling off to sleep.
