I am going to see that bridge...I will definitely call you...All it takes is for someone to tell me about a bridge that is unusual too..I will be there sometime next year!  I will research it upon the web...fascinating!

I am glad I remembered the name. When you punch it in,  keep in mind that I am not sure weather sun Dial is used correctly. It might be 1 word. I could not remember. ....Karen

Sundial Bridge is interesting...it is a 23 million dollar project. Santiago Calatrava was the engineer...it just opened in 2004!  I will look up other works that he has done as well...pretty ingenious!  Turtle Bay...hmmm, I am trying to remember what else about turlebay is of importance...?

Summer rain, wonderfuly cool on my skin. I just want to dance in it like I did as child, dance and splash in puddles.
My mother would try to catch me but at 4 yrs old I was to quick for her - however my fun would come to an abrupt end when she finally caught me.
I still miss my mum.

Love you lots

Well, the rain out there at the moment is certainly no longer 'summer rain' - it is torrents of autumn rain.

George...do you think our summer is over ?

Or perhaps we'll have an Indian summer !

We will probably have some warm days yet, but I do think we've broken the back of the heat of summer and it will be a more comfortable and gentle warmth but then, I could to totally and utterly wrong, and we yet have some record breaking temperatures to come.

I simply love the rain full stop. Summer rain is great though, warm out but the rain soon cools you off.

I especially love thunder storms, the sound and the amazing light show makes me feel humble in it's awe. Nature is wonderful and should be respected, especially when you have seen the awesome power of thunderstorm, storms at sea etc.
The other great thing about thunderstorms is how clean the air smells straight after one.
I sleep so much soundly when a thunderstorm is going, I just feel safe. BUt they do also make me feel some what horny [:I]

There were a couple of great thunderstorms in Bristol a couple of months back.

Some days it's not even worth knawing at the straps

The rain I love, even though it's a little late for my plants,

it's the cold I object to.


Love you lots

I also love the summer rain. Here in Capetown we get a lot. It is lovely.

My head is not what it used to be.

I saw the ground was damp in the morning, so it may well have been raining overnight.  There was certainly very heavy rain during the  day yesterday, but when I came home around 1 in the morning, there was a certain amount of ground mist, but no rain (good fun trying to drive along single track roads, in the dark, through misty conditions, with rabbits constantly trying to commit suicide under the wheels of your car luckily, not many other fools on the road at that time).

Hi George,

Hope you had had a nice evening  ! (trying not to appear too nosy..but I really want to know where you went...hini hint:) )

I am not too sure where you ...(hang on !)..Oh Harpenden eh ?...nice town !....I figured you were not too far as I saw your St Albans and Hertford piccys)

..Well, here in Barnet we had a constant downpour from 3am until 4am...which was nice !...and it seems there's plenty more to come today.....Yayyyyyyyyy !!

I was over at a Mensa meeting in Letchworth, and came back through the back roads through Witwell and Kimpton.

There was a brief thunerstorm last night in Bristol, although I didn't realise at first, I thought it was the police again [:I] But it was a little disappointing as it was nothing like the one before which was amazing.

Despite the summer rain LO...us here in my part of the world (London and the south of England) we are still in the middle of a drought too !!...we've been subjected to a hose pipe ban for ages now !!
I personally have not bathed since June ;) ...and I don't mind telling you I am somewhat pongy..[V] but on the plus side I am very attractive to flies and dogs ! :D
