Moody Monday……soon be September !


Best rest up…..

It will soon be September, then October and the start of the rutting season….so best rest up, eat as much as I can, then I am ready for the battles and the ‘fun’ ahead !

Just hope that I am not getting too old for this rutting lark.

Will the Summer Return…..


Bedruthan Beach, Cornwall

Our helter-skelter summer weather seems to be more down than up.  I would love a day on the beach.  So it is very much in hope that our real summer will return soon….. but who knows, not I.

Weather Warnings…….


Barns Ness Lighthouse, East Lothian, Scotland

” Red Sky at Night Sailors Delight…Red Sky in the morning Sailors Warning. “

An old weather rhyme that is often quoted today.  You can of course substitute Shepherds for Sailor for land lubbers.

I suppose by and large our Forecaster get their weather predictions more right than wrong.  Which is a worry as sever weather is again the warning from late Friday and thru the weekend.

As for the image above, which I captured many moons ago, I cannot recall if this is a sunset or sunrise.  I recall it was around mid summer and this lighthouse protrudes into the North Sea and if you are up and about you can catch both the down and up of the sun.
