Lost Horizon

We have just got back from our walk and lunch out. The weather has been changeable all the while!

The walk through the park and up on the prom was uneventful and lovely, though it had tried to rain before we put our noses out of the door but came to nothing.
As we approached the prom, we saw a rainbow segment out to sea and I was glad I’d brought the camera.
You can just see it here, but if I’d relied on my phone camera, no chance!

As we walked further along the prom, it got brighter and we could just make out a shimmer of a secondary rainbow, but my camera didn’t pick that up.
Again, my picture isn’t all that clear, but it was quite lovely to see it out to sea.

By the time we got to the cafe, it was reaching right across the sky, and there was no way I cold get it all in from where we were standing, but I did get this shot:
Isn’t it wonderful?

We had our lunch followed by tea and cake, so I have no need to worry abut preparing a meal for us today. Lots of dogs in the cafe today and I fussed most of them. So cute!
As we sat inside though, the sky came over dull and grey, the rainbow disappeared without trace, and within ten minutes, we couldn’t see the horizon at all.
We lingered for well over an hour and a half, Maggie content to sit at our feet forever in hope of the inevitable treats coming her way.
By the time we left though, the wind had started to pick up but it wasn’t raining as we made our way back. Maggie was fussed by a group of adults as their kids played in the park, and couldn’t believe she was almost 15. Of course, she lapped up the attention.

Back home now, it’s still quite mild, but it’s raining again. The heating has kicked in, so the house has dropped below our set 18º C (64º F) though I’m quite comfortable sitting here having just finished a cup of tea and about to start my blogging challenges.
We’ve walked almost two miles there and back, and I’m feeling it amidst a sense of achievement. Not exercising regularly is working against me, but I’m not worrying about any weight gain until I’m properly on my feet as I want to get my strength up.  It will be a quiet day tomorrow for all of us.

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! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
