It's Been a Funny Old Week.

It has been a while in fact nearly a month since I had anything to say have been racking my brains so have been making some notes the last few days so I might have something to say.

It has been a funny old week weather wise sunny one moment and then a cloud burst, as we used to call them that was before we got 'Severe weather warnings' all the time they seem to happening everyday just now, it is the way August is, sunshine then heavy rain you just don't go out without your umbrella.

On Thursday we took a trip to St Andrews it is a long time since we have visited there, what with our holidays and The Open Golf it would have been far too busy for us even just now it was very busy on Thursday. We had two very heavy showers when we were there and it was hard to get into a shop to shelter as many people did not have coats on etc. On our way home we had some lovely skies so I thought I would share them with you today.

Would believe we did not have a spot of rain from these clouds we seemed to go around them. It was super watching the mini storm going over our heads waiting for the clouds to burst.

Later that evening everything calmed down and I took the next two from a bedroom window.

There is no filter or any colour added to these this is just the way it was 'Wonderful' I stood in awe.

Thats about it for today hope you have a great weekend till next time, Take Care, Love,

Lovely skies. It seems everytime I see a really pretty sky I am at work without my camera.

It seems that nature can supply us with endless topics to discuss and share. In many ways what we do does depend on the weather. The sights you've captured on your camera are just beautiful. I'm often held in awe of it all! We've had many days that are very similar as far as warnings and no rain. Things are a bit dry here but we never know when one of those clouds will open up and surprise us either.

One of the joys of the caravan is watching the changing skies over the lake district.

Your sky looks just like ours does, it's been the same all through August. I'm hoping when the kids go back to school the sun will come back for us. Yeah, I know it's selfish but I shall be up in Fort William and Skye in September so I want good weather!! We do get some pretty sunsets in this country don't we? Enjoy your weekend! Jeannette xx
