SILVER LINING

Just to let you know.  Although the weather reports are dire, we seem to have missed most of the bad rainfall and winds.  Today we went for a walk across the fields behind Alnwick Castle and then drove across the causeway to Holy Island.  There were a few drops of rain, but there was also sunshine and we had a fabulous day.  The River Aln , however, usually a pleasant brook, was a raging torrent three times its usual width. 

The road south of here seems to be closed however, so we might not be able to end this holiday as soon as we had planned . . .

  1. Not sure when you planned to travel home, but things might be easing tomorrow. I said might!

  2. In fact we drove home in blazing sunshine with no hold-ups at all on the roads. The newsreels must have been about some other country.

  3. Hey I see you found me in Blogger. Congratulations. I have no idea how that works. My page is not the way all of your pages are and I do not know how to get it set up. But it is good to see some of you here.

  4. Hi, Bernadette. Go to your dashboard and click on 'Template'. After that, you're on your own!
