We had a discussion about that today.
Anyhow, I'm enjoying them. I remember collecting some along the beach when I was here before. I remember especially liking the ones with the thin white lines through them, like this:
And when I arrived here I admired one of Robin's collection's on her windowsill.
And on the island in her kitchen.
You who know me can probably see why I like it here.
When we were walking on the beach yesterday Robin mentioned that the last time I was here I found a stone that she really liked. When she said she was jealous of it, I gave it to her… that was nice. So later when she found this beauty, the pick of the day, I told her I was jealous. She immediately handed it over. I told her I was joking, but she wouldn't take it back, even though I was (half) kidding. Anyhow, now its MINE, all MINE!

Today was a nice lazy day. Old man Theo needed to rest up. He snored most of the day, while I painted on the north deck in the shade and cool breeze. Michel's daughter Isabelle joined me for awhile - she has a good artistic eye - so we enjoyed that. I had left Robin with a sketch the last time I was here:
I decided it needed some more "juice" so I worked on it today. Not sure I improved it any...
So he needs some more work, but at least he's a little more colorful cheerful, and that's a good thing.
Tomorrow we run errands for our camping expedition and will head out Sunday, hopefully after the other campers go home.
