Beach Season!

Firstly, apologies for the lack of posting. What with a number of days where I have had to travel 3 hours to Cardiff for a course and the amount of work that’s been on, plus, cleaning cars and fish, it’s been a little hectic.

Now the sun’s out, all the thoughts in the Office immediately turn to this. Beach! In the UK, Wales is no exception, we have this uncanny ability to strip off to a point that allows us to burn as red as lobsters whenever we see the glimmer of a sunny spell that may last more than a few minutes. Not sure if this is a primeval thing or not, but it makes people look funny, saw a few today. I’ll confess that I am red too but this is due mainly to me forgetting a hat and having an unexpected sunny day when I was out and about. It was meant to be raining.

It’s so sunny and so near the Jubilee celebration, we may also actually be purchasing a proper barbecue. Sweet. I feel burnt sausages coming on!! Mmm, food poisoning.

Testing uploading….

Just a quick picture to see if the upload feature of the blog is working again. Apparently, I’ve been informed by support, it’s because my internet connection is “less than stable”.

Can’t help that. I live in rural Wales and BT say we are lucky to have anything at all! So does Mrs Duck appear anywhere below……

Flapping wings and, if you look carefully, dripping water.

Hurrah! I may be fixed at last, this post only took me a few minutes after all. This image is from my archives, taken in Neyland Nature Reserve. My other half and I were most amused yesterday when we took a stroll down… the bank to control flooding is being renewed and has been piled high with building materials. However, no-one seemed to know about the recent very high tide. How long does a conrete block take to dry?! LOL!

Well, to all those that are in the UK, hope you had a nice Bank Holiday, even though it was less than dry for most. Speak soon.
