Drawing competition 1

Darrell and I had a drawing competition on the beach at Wharariki. This is how we honeymoon. I think it's clear who won. I mean, look at those high heels and the detailing on the pumpkin trick-or-treat basket.  D sketched the view of the rocks (and the sketchbook!) from where we were sitting.
