An ancient hut of sticks and stones still remained standing by a field of white poppies.

A soft sound of bells pealed from a little church in the village reminded me it’s lunch time, no wonder I felt so hungry walking by the village bakery, I could not be bothered with breakfast this morning.

The weather continued to be warm and sunny and the tourists came out by the busload, the village traders must be delighted.

Saint Luke Church

I walked toward Saint Luke church, it was only a small church, the pews filled with knitted cushions of a red cross over a blue background. He must be a physician of some sort, the healer perhaps. I stayed for a short while and had a little chat with him.

The church stood on a slope overlooking a small undulated valley scattered with rusted tin-roofs, such was a lovely scene to attempt in watercolours and I didn’t even carry a sketch pad.Photo by Thai PeckPhoto by Thai peck

Along the residential areas, I caught sight of so many beautiful old fashion stone cottages surrounded by well-kept gardens blooming with flowers, reminded me of the colonial period paintings I saw in some of the galleries.

I am beginning to like Richmond quite a lot but don’t think I call it “love” just yet.
