Canal Holiday.

First full day on canal,  approaching Brecon,  Wales.

My first pen sketch of our Canal Holiday in Wales,  with our friends Steve and Doreen. We are approaching Brecon on a sunny early evening. And we are now ready for a meal and a well deserved drink.  We set sail early am and travelled through 5 locks and cruised the canal for 9hrs today.  A super sunny and warm day. I think we’re in for some rain tomorrow so it could be interesting. Walking into Brecon town centre for tourist shopping and to stock up on food supplies before setting sail for day…..

    Thanks for update. Sounds great. Have you really got sails?? Love the sketch. I think canal holidays are great. Have fun. Don’t strain your arms when opening the lock gates. You need those muscles for sketching! See you in May. Shirley

    thanks for your e-mail- good to keep in touch, not for the fainted hearted person on a canal break, quite exciting and thrilling time, plenty to do – including your delighted pen sketch – different medium without all the paints and brushes.
    well deserve break – but not very relaxing –

    Hope to see you in Sept;ember, the surgery is being done at the end of May – thankgoodness. best wishes Brenda
