A very good turn out yesterday in wet cold windy conditions. Some artists painted from their cars, others got shelter behind walls and I sat on a bench at the beach.

Girding our loins with breakfast/coffee at Baltray Golf Club before setting off for nearby Beaulieu Gardens. Great to see again Claire, Rose and John (O'Flynn) and to welcome Diane, James and Jessica. Also present in the photo - Deirdre and John, Ann, Caroline, Sean, Kay and myself. Still to come - Pat the Painter Holton, Patrick and Valerie.
