I've been lucky to have already travelled quite a bit this summer.
I first took a road trip oo Notre Dame to visit my youngest who has been doing authentic research, using a grant. The highlight of the trip was that I brought the dog. A snuggle with a pup always makes the most difficult tasks seems a bit less daunting.
A week later I was in London, piggybacking on my husband's business trip. We spent one day together and then I had two days to explore on my own. I've posted a number of pictures on social media, but here are a few that I didn't post there.
|A member of the Queen's Guard en route to the castle|
|An installation view of the Lee Krasner exhibit at the Barbican to help give a sense of scale.|
|A mirrored table in the Painted Hall of the Old Royal Naval College enabled visitors to get a closer look at the artistry on the ceiling.|
|I got to marvel at the artistry in the Bath Abbey too, from the architects and roof makers, to the stained glass window artisans.|
|And I smooshed myself into a small space to see the inner workings of the abbey's tower clock, functioning in this location since 1888. Before then, it was at the end of the North Transept.|
And, there's always needlepoint to be done as a palette cleanser. I'm enjoying using some new stitches in the multiple projects I always seem to have going on concurrently.
What are you doing during these hot days of summer?
