This weekend marked the beginning of a cold snap, or rather, a return to the normal temperatures for this time of year. Fortunately this also meant we had some sun, very welcome after days of rain and wind.
We were looking after two of Toby's mum's dogs for the weekend, which gave us a good excuse to get our and about. Toby and the children went to the beach on Saturday while I was at Get Knitted, so on Sunday we decided to vist a new (to us) bit of the Quantocks.
Things didn't get off to a great start. When we were halfway to the car park, Sam tentatively asked, 'Should I have brought my walking boots?'. To which we replied, quite emphatically, yes he should have and no, we weren't going back to get them. So Sam had to walk in his Heelys, sans wheels, which meant, he declared, that his 'heart wasn't in it'.
Still, the sun was shining, so we set off - and then there was a hailstorm.
Even the dogs aren't looking too impressed are they?
Luckily it passed and the weather cleared.
We spent a happy couple of hours tramping through mud and enjoyed some good views across to Bridgwater Bay.
It was the first time in a while that we've all been out together; it felt good to get some fresh air.
I'm away for work for the next couple of days so probably won't be posting or replying to email. Normal service should resume in the second half of the week.
