A special 3 day event is taking place in Mandurah this holiday weekend, with approx 100 artists taking part. It has been organised by Leon Holmes, who lives in Mandurah. Leon is a well known artist here and an invited guest artist, Warwick Fuller. Warwick's paintings have been bought by Prince Charles!

We wandered around the marina and a park, which overlooks the estuary stopping to watch the artists at work. There was a really festive atmsphere with lots of visitors. The sun shone all day, but it was pleasantly warm.

We enjoyed a tasty Thai lunch in a restaurant overlooking the water and busy Marina.

Al did a very quick charcole sketch in the late afternoon.

We came home to pack ready to fly to Melbourne tomorrow.

Loving all your news of travels and exploring, and just having time with family and old friends. Amazing to have caught up with your old Rhodesian friends too - emotional for sure. And now you’ll be in Melbourne and pastures new. Looking forward to the next stories. Much love - Susie and Roger xx
