Sam has been trying to convince me to have a go at surfing here because apparently, if I can’t do it here, I can’t do it anywhere! So, I plucked up the courage and today I had a go.

I came, I surfed, I conquered

I was pleased I managed to stand up and go along on a wave, but I still think it’s a lot of effort for just a few seconds of fun!

Every day we’ve been eating in either of the two little cafes right next to the beach. The banana pancakes for breakfast are fantastic, I really like the lemon tea too – great for the cold I have at the moment!

Here’s the drawing I’ve been doing for a few mornings now, it’s coming along, just a few more mornings to go and I think it’ll be finished!

The green pencil from the cheap pack I bought is a bit vibrant, so I toned it down a bit with black to keep the grass from looking too luminescent!

Almost finished…

Sam went surfing (in a thunderstorm!) this afternoon, so, as it was raining, I stayed in the bungalow and did a pencil drawing of the dog we saw yesterday. What do you think?

 It was tricky taking a photo of the drawing, especially as the thunderstorm had made it so dark!

Today’s Every Day in May challenge was to draw the inside of your closet. As I’m lacking a closet right now, I drew my rucksack!

We’re just waiting for our chicken and chips for dinner now so I’ll leave you with this photo of some surfboards…

Yesterday I partied at Hickory TrailBeyond the Picket Fence and Savvy Southern Style.


I love your creativity! Soo cool! what a fun idea your comic diary and anytime I see surfboards it makes me feel all dreamy of beach days 🙂 Michelle
