I hope you are all keeping well, dry and warm. We had a sunny day today, it’s been fantastic and I went out for walk. By comparison on Friday we had heavy rain (nothing new there) and storms. The ground is so saturated now, after weeks of mostly rain, there is nowhere for the water to go so on Friday we did have some fairly serious flooding on the Island. The local newspaper put up a map of the Island on their website and by evening the map was completely covered in ‘road closed’ or ‘road flooded but passable with care’ signs. When I drove home from work it was quite exciting as I had to drive through several streams that were crossing the road!
On Saturday I had to drive over to the other side of the Island, I was going to postpone my visit but when I got up the rain had stopped and when I checked the map most of the signs had been removed. I had to take rather a long route to get to my destination but it was much better driving than the day before.
And today we’ve had glorious sunshine all day 🙂 It’s been so good for my soul to see the sun again. I went for my walk on the same beach I visited at the beginning of the month. This time the tide was out far enough for me to be able to walk on the beach and I noticed there was a lot of storm damage, a couple of trees had fallen over and look at this small getty. The photo on the left was taken on 2 Feb and the one of the right was taken today. The tide was out today so you get to see the horrible seaweed instead of the lovely sea. Although it was rickety looking a couple of weeks ago it did have some planking whereas today there are only the posts and a few cross bars left in place 😦
The page above is in my Artstronauts Journal and it’s a reply to the page I posted in the middle of the week. I am much happier with this page, the head and hat are a Zetiology stamp and I like the contrast of the black and white against the colourful page.
Right, I need to do some chores and get ready for work again tomorrow. Have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
