Aye Well, it Wilnae Last, Mind

Today formed the brief gap between weather warnings, and in fact it was glorious, at least for November. Not much to say about my ride today, but I thought I’d bring you a bit of scenery while stocks last

 

flooded fields

still looking a bit soggy … and there’s more rain to come

stubble field

Long November shadows on the hills

november sunshine

The camera can’t capture the spectral green of the moss

road flooded

Fortunately I was cycling in wellies…

road home

Heading home…

*being the correct traditional response to any attempt to note that it’s a nice day. Occasionally, if the forecast is for several days of fine, warm weather, then the response may creep into ‘Aye well, enjoy it while it lasts’. In the event of actual summer weather lasting for longer than a week, the locals are all driven indoors by the intolerable heat so I’ve no idea what they might say.

    Seem curious that they’d put the road right down the middle of that stream there in photo 4..
    Hope your Wellies were more like hip waders.

    Love the first pic.

    Heh. You can’t move for streams here. Any dip in the road becomes a flood, unless there’s someone busy poking out culverts with a stick
    @Jo – thanks

    Well I use waders up to my chest when fishing streams that are shallower than your “road” .

    Ah but remember I’m on the bike, so I’m a bit off the ground. Just need to be able to pedal through it
