What a wonderful, uplifting way to spend a day. Fab!

Love the group photo of the singing group walking along.

Thinking, just recently, about coping with sadness, I wrote a bit about exercise in the outdoors as an antidote. Similarly, I've been wishing I could find time to join a choir, resolving at the very least to have music playing around me more often. And here you are, brilliantly combining the two. Lovely, lovely, lovely! And yes, I think that writing in landscape, plein air writing, would make a great focus for a workshop!

Colleen - yes, it truly was uplifting. We were, of course, very lucky with the weather. For once the frequent and heavy Devon rain, which ruins many an outside event, stayed away.

Sybil - we all agreed that the afternoon walk, with the musical interludes, was one of the best parts of the day.

Mater - I love singing with a choir but should warn you that it quickly becomes addictive! (I think it's my equivalent of running.) Meanwhile, have sounded out the idea of a writing workshop and it looks like a distinct possibility. All I have to do now is plan it and agree a date . . .

What ho from bonny Scotland! Lovely photos of Devon and beech trees - two of my favourite things in life! Looks like that was a really wonderful day and I bet the sung notes are still wafting around in the treetops! A xx
