Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have been comparing weather conditions with Luciano, who hasn't seen rain for over two months, whereas I have seen very heavy rain, especially over the last few days. Our garden is saturated!

I had planned an outing today but on hearing rain pelting against our windows, I abandoned the idea!

It reminded me of a holiday we had spent in Lincolnshire when the weather affected our plans. We saw an advert for a dancing festival to take place at Sutton-on-Sea and arranged to visit.

When we reached the town, the weather had deteriorated, dark clouds gathered in the sky and only the bravest people were out and about.

We seriously wondered whether to abandon the outing and go back to our camp site but ... being keen photographers we persevered!! We did see a few line dancers who stoically performed their routine despite poor weather and poor crowds!

Anyway, here is Sutton-on-Sea without the sunshine!!

Sutton-on-Sea is a village in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, beside a long sandy beach along the North Sea. The southern part of the village is known as Sandilands.

You may be interested to know that at very low tides it is possible to view the remains of an ancient mixed forest on the beaches of Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea. It was submerged by rising sea levels about 3000 years ago. It was first reported by Portuguese botanist José Francisco Correia da Serra, who surveyed it in 1796, when he visited the area in the company of the distinguished naturalist Sir Joseph Banks.

Have a good Sunday, Bev :-)
