News Flash

As these photos confirm, I was delighted and astonished earlier this week when, in the middle of August, I was extremley pleasantly surprised (does that even make sense? I suspect not if you're being strictly grammatical, but I didn't do an English degree to get my knickers in a twist about such things) to be able to stroll along the beach and even sit down and eat lunch, without feeling like I was taking part in a survivalist training camp.

Don't fret though, I won't be putting myself under long term strain from being extremley pleasantly surprised - it was back to rain again today.

Watch with skywatch.

  5. The bottom photograph is my favourite - the one with the empty deck-chairs and the lone sitter looking out to sea, waiting for . . . what? Surely not sun on the horizon? Thunder cloud? Squall? To be rescued by the boat which seems to be passing by without stopping?

    I don't like hot days.
