Monday I met up with my friend Barbara and we went to visit the fantastic show of Jaume Plensa's work in Yorkshire Sculpture park. We couldn't of picked a better day for weather, first we had lots of fun doing the trails viewing Barbara Hepworth, Henry moore with such an amazing backdrop. We loved Sophie Ryder's bunny and had a play in Grey world's "Playground" although couldn't set off the sensor, then some children came along and started jumping all over and we soon got the idea!

We were blown away with Jaume Plensa's Alabasta Heads, you just have to see the rooms in the exhibition it's quite moving, we had to leave one as it sent you dizzy with sound.
Barbara was quite taken with a new man she met on this trip!
And I had a quick dance off with a couple of others!
We ended up going home with the roof down in the lovely sun, had a few whistles along the way (all due to the car we think!)
Just got back from a week in Robin Hoods Bay, weather was a tad windy but had a fantastic time, did some drawing and had great fun on the beach making sandcastles with my very talented little cousin Ruby (below)
Also had a look at Whitby, but you can't go without having a look at the old graveyard, and this time I didn't get bit by dracula.
No camping trip would be of any good unless you start it off with Jam Jar mojitos but a real treat for me was finding a small tobacconist in Whitby were I got my new ladies pipe!
