This morning dawned bright and clear on the marshes before a lovely bacon,sausage and homefries breakfast prepared by my host Bonnie. We enjoyed our coffee on the deck facing the marshes, as they turned from orange to gold and finally to green. We scurried around straightening up the house and parted with fondness for a happy adventure we will remember. I look forward to returning next October.
I headed out and got lost, naturally, heading in the wrong direction for about 20 minutes. I finally got turned around heading west. I made it back to my loft studio I'm happy to write.
The highlights of my residency were many:
The lovely and comfortable Big Talbot House and grounds, my painting studio on the porch.
My wonderful sponsors, North Florida Land Trust
The beautiful marshes and wetlands
The extraordinary trees
Renault Club Road
Amelia,Little Talbot, and Big Talbot Islands
Dead Tree Beach and the park
The kind and helpful park rangers
Marche Burrette Restaurant
I had a splendid time! Thanks to all who welcomed me so kindly.
