When I planned to arrive in England at the end of August, I thought it would be good to catch the end of the English summer. I must have been away too long, and forgotten how summer is here! When I flew into Gatwick last weekend it was grey and rainy.
On the news this week there have been reports of flooding in the north of England. One report that I watched showed the town of Pickering flooded out, the reporter wading around in front of camera in his wellies. Pickering is very close to Scarborough, one of my next destinations. Oh dear!
So as I drove northwards yesterday I stopped to take a couple of pictures of a lovely English summer. Ah, now I remember why I decided to go and live in Australia:-
