Me: Nyssa what kind of toy is this?
Nyssa: Granny it’s my Hug Monster.
Me: It’s ugly and scary.
Nyssa: No Granny. It’s not ugly. It’s pink and cute.
Me: Okay, if you say so.

It’s hideous but it’s an interesting subject to sketch.
We spent a wonderful and restorative week at the Crown Point Beach Hotel in Crown Point, Tobago.
Though we’ve been there many times, I never get tired of sketching the surroundings. I shared some of these in a previous post when sharing them again allows me to relive the wonderful memories.
We’re having a fun little one-week vacation in beautiful Tobago. The Crown Point Beach Hotel, near the airport and right on Store Bay is our favourite, so that’s where we are.
I did this sketch at the airport as we waited to board our flight.
Have I been maintaining my morning journaling? You bet ya.
I also brought a crochet project I’m working on; I call it a jellyfish bag. Can you guess the shape? Yep, it’s just a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants project.
OMG I never get tired sketching the views here. The hotel grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. It’s peaceful. Yes, it’s therapeutic. I love our early morning walks.
These are some of the sketches I’ve done while sitting on the balcony, overlooking the grounds, Store Bay and the ocean.
We leave tomorrow to head back home ☹️ and looking forward to our next getaway in a few months.
Just two more days before we head out on vacation – our yearly August getaway. This year we celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
When I fractured my patella in January, we had to cancel our February vacation plans with our two older grandchildren. ☹️
They won’t be with us this time but they will be vacationing with their parents not too far away and will be visiting us at our hotel for sure.
Today is mending day, so sketches of my pin container and seam ripper along with a bent empty meds card.
Now, on to the mending….
I’ve been a bit distracted planning for a week-long vacation so posting sketches to the blog has fallen by the wayside.
These are my recent sketches in my sketch journal.
And now back to planning and obsessing about that vacation. 😊
I haven’t been posting recently but I’ve been sketching.
I enjoy taking a few hours every few months or so to rummage through my container of art supplies because I always unearth something I can use, repurpose and sketch.
Today I found this Lifewit leather pen/pencil/brush roll.
