Arlene and two adopted dogs.

A morning in the rain

Well, just as we were  getting used to the lovely weather it has got to spoil it for us, doesn’t it? yesterday it was shorts and tee shirts and burning in the garden, to-day it was waterproofs, wellies and raincoats for the dogs.

I went for a walk down the Bunny which leads down to the sea, it’s quite sheltered from the worst of the  elements under the tree canopy, except when they all gather at the end of a bunch of leaves and deposit a bucket full on you.

As you come to the end of the Bunny it opens out and boy the rain hits you, it came squalling across the Channel like shards of shrapnel  hitting us in every unprotected space.

The red and yellow flags were flying horizontally by the lifeboat shed, anyone would be foolhardy going out in the water to-day, though I did  see one lone surfer  coming back to the  car park, obviously having given up.

Though It wasn’t cold, you had to be wrapped up unless you don’t mind getting wet, I do. !  After a while I started to feel a bit like a steamed pudding in my waterproof jacket.

I walked a bit farther than I intended as the dogs don’t mind and I had lots to do at home, and don’t feel comfortable sitting down doing my thing if they haven’t had a good walk, it’s only fair, as they don’t ask for much.

There weren’t any gliders in the sky to-day LOL they’d have been half way inland to Scotland before they knew it.

To be fair we did need the rain as the gardens were getting parched and watering was becoming a bit of a daily chore, and it cleared up in the afternoon. here’s a couple of pics.

      Thanks Wolfie, if you were a man I’d blow you a kiss.

  2. Thanks all who clicked the like button. I’m basking in the glory of it all. 😉

  3. awww, loved to see Tango and Ruby, modelling the coats. they looked quite professional … just like you wearing your rain-hat, Arlene…. and like you said, at least the garden got a good watering…Just like my newly-fixed roof had a tester with the downpour and accompanying thunder…and passed with flying colours.. yaaay!! I can enjoy the rain again!! … Have a great week-end, you three, and hugs a plenty from me. xPenx

    • Hi Pen, glad your roof has justified the big bucks spent on it, nothing more worrying than a leaky roof is there?
      Thanks for your compliments, LOL Ruby’s is miles too big as it was a previous dogs, but as she has such a short thin coat of her own, I feel she needs it, Tango is the opposite, his is so thick it takes an age to dry.
      Hope your weekend is panning out to be a good one. hugs and licks XXX

  4. the dogs look so cute in their coats! im so sorry it was raining for you … but what i wouldnt give for rain!

    • Thanks Kirsten, I do hope you get rain soon. We might complain about it, but where would we be without?

    I always loved the the beach even though I can’t swim. You and your dogs sure had a nice full day . We had rain with Thunderstorms last night, really nice too. I enjoyed the photos.

    • I can’t swim either, I’ve tried a couple of times but just panic when I can’t hold on to something.
      To-day it;s back to blue skies and warm sunshine, bliss!
