Thanks Val, that was one of my less inspired attempts at details! There was a power line back there and in my mind it would add something if I drew the pole and transformer and let the powerlines be "lost and found". I enhanced the photo of the work to bring out the colors better and it grabbed the lost and found lines!
I have to tell myself "less is more" as I go to sleep tonight.

Brian,

I love the travelogue you are creating with these sketches.  Looks like the makings of a good book.

One picture mentioned "cranberries."  Do they grow in England?

The name of the Campground was Cranberry Moss, I don't honestly know if they grow in UK. Barbara thinks they do.

Yes cranberries are grown in not only in England, but in Scotland as well. There is a native cranberry that grows wild, a lot of the garden type cranberries are a derivative of the New England variety. My great aunt Elsie grew cranberries.  :)

We stopped near Tarragona Spain for a brief night on the way to France and stumbled across this campground literally right on the beach. We ended up staying 3 days.
Andorra and then France next.

Brilliant Brian, looks like you stumbled upon a little gem. I love it when that happens, we would sometimes cruise the coast of an island an find some tiny little inlet we could get into and have it all to ourselves. Heavenly!

This travel log is going to make a wonderful keepsake for you both.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Brian,  How serene & peaceful it looks. No wonder you stayed more than one night. 😊
