Went with a couple of friends to Gent. They had work commitments so parted late afternoon and met up later. In the meantime, I went sketching. Unfortunately it coincided with a downpour of rain. I waited and waited and it would not stop! Took cover in a cafe and drew the Bestand church and people passing beneath their umbrellas.
The cafe closed so my comfy stool was taken away. I walked on and dashed across the road to take cover. Skidded in the middle of the road and almost got run over. Very embarrassing! Ok but v wet. Went to pub, sat and sketched view and sampled a couple of local blond beers. Houblon Chouffe very strong! Drawings got looser as I enjoyed listening to the music; Roxy music, David Bowie and some 80’s classics. Then friends turned up!
