On a Sunday with rain forecast, what better place to go than what I sometimes think of as our miniature version of the V and A in Bournemouth. The Russell Cotes Museum had an interesting looking exhibition advertised and a new menu in the cafe. So we decided to take a look. We had forgotten we would have to pay to view inside during the season, but the views outside were still free!
The textiles in the exhibition didn’t grab me much but I enjoyed the amazing mosaics by Cleo Mussi – great inspiration for collage work.
The cafe menu lived up to expectations, and once outside again the views across the bay of approaching rain clouds were glorious.We stood for a while in warm sunshine enjoying the sounds of the waves, and then headed home before the downpour.
