Early morning trip to see the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the sunshine and frost

Whoa it’s big 🙂
The USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier is currently moored in the Solent just off the peninsular where I live because it is far too big to fit into Portsmouth Harbour!   It is colossal!
I got up early this morning and it was sunny with a heavy frost.   My hands ached with cold as I walked along the beach at 7am but it was worth it, I beat most of the dog walkers and had the beach, and the view to myself.   I took a few pictures I am pleased with.  It took me a while to get one of the aircraft carrier that I was pleased with because I didn’t want to just take the usual pic of it in the sea (although it is very scenic with the Isle of Wight behind).    On my way back along the beach, I spotted this fence and rope at a cafe and chose to use them as the foreground.   I am pleased with the result!
Yesterday it was raining (actually it was hailing until it looked like snow!) so I stayed in and practiced some painting – I had a lot of fun, I bought some extra colours to compliment the ones I had and spent a happy afternoon doing finger paintings on rough paper.   I will use one of them for Free Art Friday again this week, not sure what my text will be though!
More soon!
