I went to Sunday services today in the tiny stone church just across the green from my B&b. it was a beautiful service, very close to the prayer book Rite I that I remember from going to early church with my grandparents growing up.
Then I walked out to the moors to paint. I'm enjoying my lunch breaks with a view. I took this photo from my lunch site yesterday and went back there to paint the same trees today.
If I can get back out there in the late afternoon, I want to paint from the same vantage point as the photo.
My hosts greeted me with tea and cake, as they do every afternoon, and I'm currently sitting in a huge, cosy leather chair with a fire going for the evening. I can't say enough good things about Heather and Michael and their Rectory Farm B&b here in Levisham. I'm delighted to be spending five whole nights here with them. Their kindness makes me feel very happy and at home.
