I haven't any paintings to show at the moment, but I have so many painting projects in the planning stage that I'm very excited .... however ... we went to a place called Parrog today (5 miles away) ... so ... look out for seascapes in the future.
Parrog is a small village which is part of the town of Newport, Pembrokeshire. Now when I tell you that Newport has a population of only 1200, you can imagine that Parrog is tiny.
We went to Parrog to join the Newport Boat Club:

It was a wet and windy day and all the boats are laid-up for winter. Here's a more popular seasonal picture:
You can see the potential for paintings already can't you?
We joined the club - a cosy little place we will be using a lot once I've finished building Seagull

I had a look around for launching slips and there are lots of them. This one looked the most likely one, for two reasons:
Firstly, it's adjacent to the Boat Club Car Park and secondly, it is next to the lovely little restaurant which you can see on the left, in yellow. Best Crab Bake Pat has ever tasted.
My daughter and her dog Blodwyn sniffed-out a second slip behind the Boat Club:
Looks like lots of fun ahead ... I like the idea of painting from a boat!
