Stand Up Paddle-Boarding With a Dog

AC150717cLast year, I met a woman who was using an inflatable stand up paddle board (SUP) in Lyme Regis cove, in Dorset. She let me have a go and I was hooked. I used the money I made in my Frome With a View exhibition to buy my own board. It’s still pretty hefty, at about 13 kilos (29 lbs), but I’m able to put it in my body board backpack and carry it around town. Since we live about 10 minutes walk from the water, that is a Good Thing.

Apartment Living: I Miss Having a Garden

The flat we’ve rented in Hondarribia doesn’t have a balcony, or even windows with access to much light (it is in the old town and designed for shade). It is lovely to be able to walk out into the countryside and see the caserios (country houses) with their gardens.
