Cottage, Cygnets and Meeting the Artist

We met our friends for breakfast at The Heron on the side of the Malpas River and had a delicious breakfast with delightful company. Across the water is this lovely white cottage with its own stone steps down to the beach.

Walking away, we spotted two swan families on the water with six cygnets between them.

Afterwards we went into Truro to the museum to collect the print of Tony Foster’s Lockdown diary 1 which I fell in love with when we first saw it a couple of weeks ago. I showed you Lockdown Diary 2 in a post that day. You can see it here. You’ll be able to see the print when it has been framed.
I was excited about collecting the print and even more so when the staff said that Tony Foster was in the gallery and that I should go and meet him. What a lovely, friendly man! He was so easy to chat to, about his paintings, about the Grand Canyon, about the danger our beautiful and fragile planet is in, about lockdown and his delightful record of those strange days. Β He was gracious enough to let me get a photo for this blog. He is standing by Lockdown Diary 1, a copy of which will be on our wall before too long.

At the back of the catalogue are the following words.
