Classic British Summertime


  It is nearly the height of summer here in Britland, so why don't we take a look at a typical summer's day - i.e. today:












  I don't think I need to say any more, do you?

  Oh, except:This is probably not the most conducive weather for modelling your Tin Foil Hats in.

    1. Well, we do enjoy a good drama up here on the coast.

      And there'll be more drama if you miss the deadline this year!

  2. Oh I like that sort of weather. Although the seagulls are getting a bit frisky up here, and the man collecting for the RNLI outside the cathedral had a sou'wester on today.
    It's getting confusing.

    1. That's a very Ms Scarlet-type comment. Swap your avatar for hers and I don't think I'd be able to tell the difference?
      It's not Soul Swap Saturday, is it? Did I oversleep or miss a memo??

    2. Not knowingly. Perhaps Ms Scarlet could say something about it?
      I did however google 'gay Cromer' and was surprised to find it has a scene: http://www.cruisinggays.com/cromer/3492

  3. Beautiful as always dear. We have had a glorious summer here, but this week was actually cool and rainy. But I'm reading myself for two more trips to some beach points soon. I will feel better after I dip my fanny in the sea. That last picture is a stunner....

    1. I hope you get some hot sunny weather for your dips - no one enjoys a cold wet fanny.

  4. It certainly has been a very grey July. As usual in the UK. Jx

    1. Oh, LẌ, that's hideous! How long will you have to suffer these conditions? When does Texas start to cool down?

    2. Typically, this will continue through August, then cool down to the 90s in September and the 80s in October.

    3. 80s in October?? Still too hot!!

  6. Looks similar outside my door except the sky is less ominous, there's lawn & trees & there's no beach or sand!

    1. So which alternate universe are you in, then?

  7. Oh yes - just replace all this water with hills & wine yards and it could pass as Franconia ...

    1. Distracted by Aidan? Thank heavens for small mercies. Or, large ones (I imagine) in Aidan's case...
