Dragons!

.
So the 50th Anniversary RNA Conference at Greenwich has been and gone. It was wonderful and exhilarating and exhausting and ... and its absence has left a whacking great hole in my life.





I ought to be filling that hole with writing, and indeed, I have sent off a couple of shorts, but you can't keep an addicted conference organiser down, so last week I went to the site of next year's RNA Conference in Caerleon.



And found dragons. All over Newport. Provided by a most enlightened council for schools, clubs and professional artists to decorate. I couldn't get pics of the ones in the shop windows, but here are a few to delight you.





Enjoy!

And brilliantly organized the RNA Conference was, yet again, thank you. I don't know how you do it all, but I'm glad you do.

Love those dragons.

Love the dragons - want to take one home.

Aren't the dragons wonderful? There seems to be a vogue for decorated animals/mythical creatures at the moment - Bath has lions which are also cool.

Thanks, Debs. Conference is lots of work - but lots of fun too, and totally worth it.

Thanks, Liz. I really fell for the little bronze dragon. Want him so much.

Hi Stephanie - decorated creatures cheer a town up and give it surprise and interest, I find. One day I must see the Bath lions.

A proper dragon-fest, I love it! Glad you had a great conference, I've been reading about it everywhere and feeling envious :o)

Jan Jones said...

You're welcome, Talli - it was lovely to meet you.

And, Karen, go on, take the plunge and join us next year. You know you want to.

Amazing, Jan. Look forward to it.

I too came back from Caerleon with dragon pics. Not as numerous or as distinct as yours. But weren't they amazing!
