I thought I would get a lot of work done. You know, lay on the beach and do some sketching. Nope. No chance. Now I'll have to catch up.
This is a charming sculpture in a small park by the water in Bristol, RI. It is dedicated to cultural diversity and the marine heritage of the Portuguese explorers from whom many residents hail.
