Harwich lighthouse
I took my parents to Harwich this afternoon for them to embark on their cruise ship, where they are spending the next 10 days sailing around. Surprisingly, it was a lovely afternoon, so I headed from the docks into Harwich town. Sitting at an outside café I sketched the Harwich lighthouse in the time it took to drink my cup of tea.  The owner then suggested I went to adjacent Dovercourt to see the twin lighthouses there. It was low tide showing the causeway which is normally covered by the tide. I may add colour to this sketch later as I took some great photo references with the blue sky contrasting against the usual grey sea.
