Harbour Town Adventures

Sweltering days. Sea mist making for a cool walk along Buffs beach. Storm clouds filling the sky. Thunder and lightning, not the best for a Border Collie. His mobi-kennel the sanctuary.

An amazing painting from my time in South Sudan ‘Displaced’ heading to its new home in Switzerland. So thankful for the support, and the privilege to share my emotional adventures.

Looking to continue the Nyathi Series of small works, while my hands take a break from cutting out butterflies from recycled plastic water bottles.

First open-water swim session, a bit of a wake-up call. It’s was a 05h30 swim, so certainly early and much tougher than I was expecting. My shoulder not particularly happy either. Wobbly legs took a few km to settle on the run.

Recycled water bottle butterflies artwork commission from Ireland. Humbling, and exciting.
