There are signs of autumn in the air, though most of our trees have yet to change color. I suppose that disappoints those arriving daily on fancy cruise ships so they can see the fall colors, but I’m grateful. Our summer started so slowly that we need an equally slow entry into winter for sanity’s sake.
I made another trip to Bassin Louise, the harbor for personal craft in Quebec City. I confess that I’m not impressed by the modern plastic boats that people are so proud of but give me a classic wooden ship and I feel the need to sketch it. This sketch didn’t do the old yacht justice but here it is, warts and all.
