Banks along the Blue

After yesterday’s rain, today looks promising though I think we can forget soaring temperatures for the time being, which is actually a blessing.
Maggie and I were out walking before 7 this morning, and the air felt crisp and fresh.
She immediately squatted her bot at the top of the gantry, and did the rest of her business before I got to the gate. I didn’t have a coat, but felt rain in the air, so decided against walking round the Avenue just yet and turned to walk back to the boat.

Looking up, the sky had some interesting cloud formations, as if it was a river flanked by  fluffy banks. As they undulated across the thermals in various hues of white blending to a pale grey, I could see a rain front coming in.
It is not unusual for bad weather to go round us, as if we are the jelly in the doughnut.
In fact, it can be quite spectacular to see the chains of rain falling, yet know you are completely safe and dry in your centrepiece of the world.

Behind us, we have witnessed the fury of a building storm as it blackens the sky swallowing the light like some demented pacman. Sadly my pictures of this in 2014 didn’t come out, but this was pretty close and taken in 2010 when I visited NZ.

No plans for today, but with the skies clearing, Maggie will get her walks and the mileage will soon add up.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
