A Wet Weekend

I spent last weekend in Cornwall with a group from the TVR Car Club. I enjoy camping, so jumped at the opportunity to spend a few nights under canvas. It gave me the opportunity to spend a day with my good friend, artist Patrick Woodroffe. Patrick was a very busy illustrator when I was cutting my teeth as a designer and illustrator in the seventies and eighties. I always loved his work, so it was fantastic for me that we became friends. You can see some of his work here:

We spent the day catching up and walking around his home town of Falmouth. Lovely, lovely man.

Here also is a pic of some of the twenty or so cars that travelled down for the weekend. Mine's the dirty one in the foreground.

Its good that you got to see your friend Pete ,despite the niggles that nearly stopped you going , and the car got a good run too .Not sure about the camping though ,much better in proper digs y'know ;)

If the accommodation was a comfy hotel or even a caravan, I'd not be interested in going. I enjoy the 'difference' provided by staying in a tent for a few nights. It makes me think differently. I appreciate minimalism isn't to everyone's taste, but I like it.
