This is the view to the west from the lawn of a "for sale" cottage on the northeast tip of Club Island. The cottage is in need of repair. Raccoons and skunks were living under the cottage, having removed some of the wood fencing that was designed to keep them out. This is the third day of the 10th Annual International Plein Air Painters Paint Out. We have 20 artists participating in the Rockport Event which was cosponsored by the Rockport Development Group. The wave action from the passing tours boats came crashing into the little bay.
