It's been mostly grey weather since I arrived here at the caravan park last weekend.
What should be fresh early Summer weather has instead felt like Autumn September days. The skies, apart from the few hours of sunshine on Monday when I gardened like mad to make the most of it, have been grey and overcast and the nights wild, cold and wet.
The river has been high and fast flowing, and watching it rush past so quickly can make you start to feel dizzy. But I do love being on the riverbank in the mornings.
Seeing how the rain of the previous night has made the level rise or fall, listening to the water and breathing in the damp freshness of the riverbank itself and then the salty, sandy smell of the little pebbly beach that we have half way along the river behind the grassy banks.
It's a good way to start the day, especially with an appreciative Pug at my feet.
There's more colour in the fridge than outside at the moment.
This little shelf with the mixed aroma of Spring Onions, Easy Peelers and the salad in the salad drawer makes the fridge seem a happier and far more Summery place than the one outside the Van door.
