Walk Three Hundred and Thirty-Five – Mediterranean Sandridge

coffee
It was a lovely sunny day and I had planned to sketch the long evening shadows over the fields by the bluebell wood. However when I saw that our shopkeeper has bought four chairs and a couple of tables so that we can sit outside and enjoy coffee bought at the shop, I couldn’t resist recording this historic moment in the village. The evening before the binmen come to pick up all the rubbish probably wasn’t the best day to launch café al fresco, but I don’t suppose that has ever stopped the opening of a new Starbucks.

Catching up on your sketches, as usual they are lovely, love the one of Xavier, and the idea of coffee by the bins, ah well. Still in holday mode, only a week left but frustrated at not being able to put up sketched so photos on the other blog will have to do.

Lovely little sketch. I suppose there will be trucks racing past too - still - nice to have a place to sit out for a coffee.
