Last week we went along to the opening of Nancy Smillie's new 'Full Circle' Gallery in Saltoun lane. Well done to Nancy and her team for creating a fantastic space for displaying the work of some wonderful artists and craftsmen/women.

Nancy welcomes guests to the opening of her new gallery.

And chats with some friends in the 'hidden' garden out-the-back of the gallery.

Even the people in the paintings were having a good time.

Below are some of our holiday photos; from Tossa De Mar in sunny Spain.

We spent just enough time in Lloret De Mar to have some lunch, and for Pat to do some research into where would be be going next.

One of the beaches at Tossa De Mar.

Tossa De Mar is a great place to go if you want a quiet relaxing holiday. The views are splendid, the mediaeval walled village remains unspoiled, and the weather is unquestionably Spanish - not Scottish. Should you want more action Barcelona is just over an hour away and you can visit other resorts by boat.

18th century buildings with their large wooden doors are still common throughout Tossa.

I like this picture of Pat - it's nice and colourful - and Pat is looking good.

We took a bus ride to Barcelona for the day. I spotted this unusual door knocker as we stepped off the bus. The city has other highlights, apart from door knockers; I would recommend a visit.

There was no missing the architecture of Gaudi; this block of flats was just one example.

We took a break from the tourist bus to check out the newly developed walkways and shopping centre at the port and had some great tapas.

I have a selection of my photographs for sale in the Gallery Shop.
