Sunbathing Chickens

This morning I awoke to calm and quiet. A little too calm and too quiet. Going to make my early morning cup of coffee ( I don't function too well without it!), the traveling crew were nowhere to be seen.

I put on my best deerstalker hat and went searching. Nobody on the back patio. No one in the bottom garden. As I crept round the side of the house, there they were sunning themselves on the sunlounger. They had taken a sneaky early morning swim. As Senor Azul explained:

"We awoke as the cock crowed and as everyone else was still asleep, went for a dip to cool off after the warm night."

After breakfasting on the balcony, the crew got ready to leave. After a teary goodbye, they climbed aboard and went off to the next leg of their journey in Brittany.

Farewell my colourful friends.

  1. Beautiful painting; I love the bright cheery colors! I am so glad they had a great visit with you! I understand they are on their way to another artist in France :) I know they are so happy to visit Europe; as Europe is where the whole adventure began!

  2. So beautiful! I love the quiet mood. Who would have guessed this colorful gang could be peaceful? GREAT JOB!
