The Wrinkly Rambler

Pleasant walks with camera and three dogs

Sunshine Amongst the Showers

The weather has been very mixed this week; rain, hailstones and a cold wind one day, warm enough for shirt sleeve wear the next, then back to chilly and wet. However, the sun did manage to shine most days and although we didn’t venture any further than some local walks around Rivington we still managed to get out and about most days. Here’s a selection of pictures taken the past couple of days.

Would you take a stick out of this dog's mouth. ;-) Brett playing in the stream at the side of the path in the previous picture.

    Hi Malc – some lovely pics of you all – makes me a bit homesick for the English countrside! and Daisy of course. Weather here quite hot, 30 degrees and getting hotter by the day! Too hot unless you are doing nothing!

    Life here has its ups and downs but on the whole I have to admit I love this climate and have made some lovely new friends.

    See you mid July – love Marian

      Hi Marion, nice to hear from you and pleased to know you are enjoying your stay in Cyprus. If the weather where you are is so hot you wouldn’t want to be here at the moment as the temp is only about 12degC. Hopefully it will be warmer when you get back home in July.
