... in the air today. Well it is September and the nights are drawing in once again. Our annual gad about is now finished. We rounded it off with a trip to the Picasso exhibition at the Tate in Liverpool and on Friday a visit to
Yorkshire Sculpture Park
The Picasso exhibition has now finished but the exhibits by David Nash at the sculpture park are there until February.
I found both extremely interesting.
Biddle did not visit Liverpool and missed out on a Chinese meal for lunch but he did enjoy the sculpture park
We watched clouds
and took some photos
This spot in the park should be a tranquil space. Outside is a notice clearing stating this however our time studying the passing clouds was disturbed by three of the most badly behaved boys one would ever wish to meet!
We took a leisurely stroll around the park revisited and discovered that the Andy Goldsworthy
pieces had weathered quite a bit since we first saw them in 2007
These are not photos of the same piece but they all had weathered in a similar way.
Saturday we made a short visit to the Bankfield Museum in Halifax to see some quilts and afterwards I discovered a new wool shop in the piece hall called Three Bags Full there was a delicious choice of yarn and I bought two balls of Alpaca to make some fingerless gloves. There is a blog
Monday we made our yearly trip to the Leeds West Indian Carnival, the costumes were great
And the fried chicken with rice and peas extremely tasty!
So that is it. Life goes back to normal now. Work eventually and hopefully some spare time to make something nice.
