Staying close to home today. Sketched and painted at the Bay - trying to do at least one a day. Thinking more about how to look at my drawings as “sculpture”.

Tonight we all gathered at Mary’s Cottage for a holiday feast. It was a lovely dinner followed by Guinness at Healy’s. A 50th birthday party was taking place when we arrived. One is always invited to participate in any event happening at the bar. I have enjoyed many a Guinness while watching folks gather for rehearsal after- dinner parties, after wedding celebrations, Christmas parties, etc. Every event is part of the community - not tucked away in some private venue.
