Doing not a lot......

Over this past week until today we seem to have had wall to wall rain and strong winds.....

 The campsite that we are staying on is towards the top of high ground overlooking the river Tamar and across to Cornwall.
 Any strong winds coming in from the south west can hammer across towards us and on a couple of occasions over this past week I have had to lower our pop top roof both for safety and also to make it a bit quieter for us to allow us to get a good nights sleep.

 The constant bad weather has really restricted our activities...
 We really have been doing not a lot.
 No cycling and no walking on the moor that is unless you wanted to end up completely soaked.

 Even the best wet weather gear that you can buy wouldn't have been able to keep you dry over this past week...

 Then today arrived...

 What a lovely day we have had....
Yes it has been cold but it was dry and the sun was out and it does really brighten everything up including our mood. 
 The cold I can live with much better than I can the rain.....
 Mind you having said that looking at the national weather forecasts we always seem to have some of the warmest or should I say less cold weather down here in the southwest than the rest of the country...

 The forecasts are telling me that we should be able to enjoy some more settled weather over this coming week so walking and cycling should be back on the agenda.
  Below are some images of our campsite..the lane outside the site and this evening's sunset looking over towards Cornwall....

The constant rain is depressing but there's been more settled weather here over the last week or so and we have managed some good rides in fine but cold weather. We had a few days away in Henley on Thames and again were lucky with the weather.
Hopefully this week you'll be able to get out.

It's great that you have managed some good rides.... unfortunately our improved weather didn't last long and we are now back to wet and windy again...

Tell me about It. The rain has been relentless, even as I comment sitting here at the winchcombe site it is throwing it down. We have been severely restricted on things to do on our travels around North England and Scotland but onwards and upwards Trev Summer is only 5 months away! I hope the weather will improve for both our sakes.

Quite brave of you both to head north for a mini tour at this time of year...although I remember some years ago we headed to Scotland when we heard that it was snowing up there.. I seem to remember trekking through thick snow ..ending up in a off the beaten track hotel and the proprietor opening up the bar just for us .....

Lot's of Changes Ahead ....

I thought that it was about time that I posted another entry on this blog, although to be honest most days have seemed a bit like Groundhog...
