The skies lately have been turbulent and varied: bright blue & clear one minute followed by wispy clouds the next and then onto puffy, cotton candy-like cumulus…typical of the West Coast! I decided to wander down along the shores of Booth Bay to explore the cloudscapes and found myself getting lower and lower down on the beach, practically belly crawling, to get dramatic, low-angle photos of some of the more interesting rocks with the clouds as a distant backdrop.
We’re heading into the summer season and the somewhat monotonous days of nothing but clear blue skies. Sure, a welcome change from the months of grey, overcast conditions but I like a little bit of something to break up those huge blue expanses once in a while!
An early morning stroll through the Saturday Market yielded some much welcome rewards: a few prints by a local artist Gillian Gandossi
for my sister’s upcoming birthday as well as a few pieces of pottery by Louise Goodman
to add to my collection.
I enjoy cooking: the preparation, execution and, of course, presentation & eating! This varied set of small & medium bowls along with a serving platter are great to use for all of the above. Roasted red pepper & tomato soup with basil pesto; fresh honeydew melon; clean-up and a plate of dry potato & carrot curry with peas. Bottom photo: Louise at the Market
