Marilyn and I went out to have a picnic today and to do some sketchbook drawing. We first stopped at Big Johns market to get a sandwich and a really cool new sparkling water beverage with cucumber essence. Then we wandered downtown to the Plaza and parked ourselves on a bench near Foss Creek to have lunch but it was way too cold and windy to stay long enough to draw. We finished our sandwich as fast as we could and then headed indoors to a local Coffee shop, The Bean Affair. I ordered a cup of tea which warmed me inside and loosened my cold hands enough to draw Marilyn while reading a good book.
