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.
