Sketching can kick a lovely, lazy Sunday to a whole new level. I started with breakfast on this patio near the lake.
Then I went for a walk along the shore. I even went wild and tried colouring a sketch on the spot. (The results are pretty mediocre, but hey...it was an experiment.) And I discovered that a toothbrush holder from the dollar store can hold four watercolour pencils and a waterbrush.
Then I picked up a few groceries. Around the corner from the grocery store, I sat outside the city's new concert venue/entertainment centre, overlooking Fort Frontenac.
Without moving from the steps I counted nine historic plaques. The one in the foreground says "Count Frontenac erected a fort here in 1673." I wonder what he would think about the rock concerts and monster truck exhibitions that shake these old stones in 2009?
