As we were intending to spend one of our original three weeks laid up in Portugal at a holiday cottage with Ann & Jan, we think it’s only fair that we all now spend some quality time together over the next couple of weeks as that option has been canned! The 1st excursion has been to Stourhead, a National trust house in Wiltshire. It was a great day out and it meant I (Bernice) was able to experiment with my new camera lens. It took lots of deliberating around whether or not to take my digi-SLR with us or not, decided in the end it was a no-brainer if I am to seriously develop my art practice on route. So the next decision was on a new lens, and I think it’s official – its GRRRRRREAT!!!
