People can be seen wandering aimlessly along, wrapped up as though it were Winter, battling the elements, and trying to put a brave face on things. It's what we British do best!!
But, this weekend, the weather Gods are smiling down at us and the weather is, well, just like Summer! 😊. In fact, this weekend is our last Bank Holiday until Christmas. (There! I've mentioned the 'C' word).
Holidaymakers are heading to our wonderful beaches in their droves, blocking up the lanes for mile after mile, whilst local people try to find a peaceful spot to enjoy some family time, before the children return to school in early September.
Caravans crawl along our narrow roads, totally oblivious of the five mile tailback behind them. Here are a couple of photos of places near where I live, to give you some idea of the roads around here....
Driving across Dartmoor, you also have the sheep 🐑 that wander across the road!
But it's sad to think that Summer will be soon be coming to an end, as the evenings gradually start to pull in. We were having a lovely Summer....we even managed a couple of heatwaves, would you believe, when people could be seen trudging along, muttering to themselves..."it's too hot! It's TOO hot!!" Alright, I'll admit it, that would have been me then.
But, of course, as soon as the schools closed for the Summer, everything went downhill, and August has been a very unsettled month.
So this latest spell of lovely (but definitely not too hot) weather has come along just at the right time.
Talking about weather, my thoughts and prayers are with people in certain areas of Texas at the moment, with Hurricane Harvey causing widespread damage.
Well, I think that's all for the moment, so I'll close again for now.
