All packed up and ready to head off in the morning for a few days at Swansea- a lovely little seaside town on Tasmania’s east coast.
I can’t believe how much I’ve packed! Every time I travel I promise myself next time will be different- I’ll only take the essentials, I’ll pack light, every second item will be flung out of the suitcase- and then I find myself thinking ” there’s still a bit of room in here, it’d be a shame not to take another dress/top/tube of paint/kitchen sink”.
There’s a carry on size bag for my clothes, shoes and toiletries, a cooler bag of groceries, a plastic crate of painting gear, a backpack with electronics and a box of small canvases and art books!!!! Oh – I forgot the beach bag full of bathers,towel and snorkles.
I plan to do a lot so of course I need a lot. Here’s my to do list in no particular order
- walking on the beach
- prep some art lessons
- eating healthy meals
- more walking
- a few more paintings
- a big bowl of icecream
- a pastel sketch or two
- consume some of mum’s Mrs Smith’s biscuits
- back for more icecream
- maybe a bar of chocolate
- walk outside
- back for a quick snack
…I think that about covers it. Maybe all I need to take is a big bowl and a spoon?
