Finally on Saturday I was able to go out sketching with friends again. It was hot, but a cloudy day. which was for the best. It meant that we could sit where otherwise it would have been full sun and impossible. We wandered around aimlessly for quite a while trying to decide what to sketch. We tried to get down near to some of the boats, but it proved to be a floating pontoon that was heaving about on the choppy water. In the end we just sat down right where we were standing. There were plenty of boats about, and some naval ships, but machinery of any sort always attracts me so I decided to draw this.
