Making My Way South...

Week of Dec 9...On Saturday, the 8th, I visited my son, Jeff's in-laws, at Hilton Head Island...stayed through Sunday night, then off to Savannah GA, thru Friday...many great sketches in the historic part of town.... invited to a Wednesday luncheon on Skidaway Island with a pleasant bunch of regional female artists. Then on to Fernandino Beach, FL, where I again sketched in the historic village and the beach - great subject matter AND I really like the town as a possible place to 'hang my hat'...Florida can be extremely warm, but located n the coast, the heat is not what you might expect.  Today, I will again do sketching on Amilia Island, then on to Saint Augustine for a day or two. Weather in the high 60's, low 70's...which I can certainly handle !

Milling Around SC...

Week of Dec 2: Headed south to Pawley's Island - lots to sketch & paint- and also in Georgetown, SC,...onto Mount Pleasant, where I stayed for several days, as the Charleston, SC session did not take, I spent the next three days sketching sites in & around Mt. Pleasant and Shem Creek - lots of good stuff there. Tuesday ventured into Charleston for a buggy ride thru the old historic district, sketching for the afternoon. Thursday to Beaufort, SC... that's Beau-long 'u', unlike 'Bowfort, NC'. Another great town, lots of history and a buggy tour on Friday also netted me a $50 - yes, $50 parking ticket in an empty city parking lot, while I was on the buggy tour... I did 'appeal' at the town office. Visited the Beaufort Art Association gallery - very nice display of regional art, although too much 'original photography'. On south to Hilton Head Island; had dinner with Phil & Barb Johnson in-laws of my son, Jeff, and stayed overnite at their home on Callawassee Island.
