 Lots of threatening clouds as I set off with the dogs - they were not showing as rain clouds
A little bit of Tamarisk flowering in this sheltered spot

RNLI Penlee Lifeboat Ivan Ellen crossing the bay on a Sunday run

Sun was finding gaps here and there

Waves being pushed in sideways by the Easterly wind

Like this view from near the Church - top end of St Piran's Way and Trebarvah above
A slightly early afternoon walkies as the rain was approaching from the South
 Think you can see how strong the wind has been by the splashes up on Lighthouse Pier
 Scillonian III is safely over on the Albert Pier

Beach looking deceptively  good - but I bet it was chilly down there
Back down the hill we went and just a little later the rain arrived - more expected tomorrow

 Busy, busy day with the changeover up at Oamaru Barn,  sadly we had drizzle and rain, so no lawn mowing or window cleaning. 
 10.48am and the lines were covered in Starlings
 After a quick dash to Penzance for replacement kit, the rain had stopped for a while
 3 hours later and the Starlings were even more tightly packed.
 and they'd had to use the overflow cables
 Yes ! Yet another trip along the lane  - it really was one of those days
 Much clearer now and I could see Wolf Rock
 Dog walking time, thankfully that cloud had passed to the South.
 Nice sky with a little more rain out to the East

 Really rather cool out on Maen-dhu Point and the wind is due to get worse tomorrow

A little colour  as the sun went down

 Another fine morning
 and the pumping guys were down on the field - getting the system ready for the influx of half term visitors
 Several more butterflies as I walked the dogs through the village
 A little more haze than we've had recently
 Walked down Boat Cove Lane past the Rheas
 Looks like some garden maintenance going on

 Waiting for the beach to appear
 Loved the dog joining in with the fun

 Then got busy with more jobs that have been waiting for a long while.  Cleaned the inside of the glass screens on the balcony as the window cleaner had done the outside the other day
 Very low pass by this Merlin and I gather that I missed a couple of B52 bombers come past whilst I was having my lunch - Oops !
 Just a small part of a large flock of Starlings that came zooming around
 Afternoon walkies and the sky had really changed to the South - nice little Sun Dog (parhelion) to the left of the sun

 Expect some Ear Force reports over the weekend

 Let the holidays begin !

 Sun just about to sink into the darker cloud
