We had a nice time at the beach, the weather was a bit iffy, not raining but cold and a bit blustery...I stayed in the car whilst OH and Betty went for a walk, then they came back to the car and we all ate our food (Betty had her own bowl of doggie treats). A couple of pics:-
Bits of blue sky, but mostly grey. The tide was out so Betty didn't have to run away from the waves! It looks quite deserted but there were actually quite a few dog walkers around. We drove to the far end of the car park, which was empty, so we could have our picnic in relative solitude....well, would you believe it, the car you can see in the first pic drove up and parked right beside us - when there was loads of space everywhere else! Huh! 😠 Must have been desperate for company, haha.
We've had some funny old weather lately.....mostly unpleasant. A couple of nights of howling gales hurling rain against the windows - fortunately, we suffered no damage, other than a few pots blown over in the garden. During the days we've had lots of short, sharp showers with really blustery winds, interspersed by 20 mins or so of bright sunshine - one afternoon it was warm enough, for an hour or so, to actually be out in the garden without a jacket. We've had some lovely rainbows due to all the rain/sun/rain. A couple of days ago we had really bright sun when all of a sudden the sky turned black virtually in the blink of an eye and it chucked it down with hail:-
And then the sun came out again. Weird. Midday today it stopped raining and the sun came out, so we took Betty over the Marshes nature reserve. 5 mins after we got out of the car, it started raining again....I wouldn't mind if it was just one thing or the other, for a few hours at a time, at least we'd know then that we could get out for a good walk, or I could put some washing on the line, or it would be a case of staying home as it was almost certainly going to be raining for several hours. Which, incidentally, is what's forecast for tomorrow - rain pretty much all day.
And that's the end of the weather forecast for Somerset 😁😁
