'I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out 'til sundown, for going out, I found was really going in.' John Muir

I've seen the top of Everest (from a long way off), smelled the breath of a whale (from way too close) and lived on a boat in Greece (for a few years), but I continue to experience some of my most precious moments right outside my backdoor.

My lovely Charlie is building me a cute little studio in the back garden, Dad has come to help. I'm feeding them with tea and cake. I'm also collecting all the funny shaped off-cuts from the roof timbers. Today I created a whale, quite slowly and very satisfyingly BLUE. I do love blue.
I made a little film about it and posted it above but for some reason you can't see it. So here are the photos from the film instead!

Charlie and Dad making my garden studio - hurray!

Off-cuts from the roof

Hmmm, looks like a sperm whale to me!

Thanks for the new sander Dad!

Don't tell Charlie I'm using his best chisel

Blue of course!

 Scottish coral for the spout and Welsh driftwood for the tail

A rusty washer for the eye - never throw your rusty washers and nails away!

Thar She Blows!
