Drying Out

The weather people said we ended up with almost 6 inches of rain on Saturday. I think it was more. My bucket in the garden is completely full. I thought it would never stop! Sunday brought high winds. We'd spent all day Saturday in so we decided to go out even though it was still raining and very windy. We didn't walk far but decided to go look at a couple of (sort of) nearby lighthouses. The waves at the lakeshore were wild!

There was definitely no walking along the walkway! It was covered with water and waves. It's amazing to think this is a lake and not the sea!

At the other lighthouse there were people trying to surf! They could barely get up on their boards before either the wind or the waves knocked them off again!

Monday dawned cloudy but I put my boots on and went for a walk anyway.

The water was a lot higher at the place where I usually walk. I can usually walk past that plant - now it is in the lake! I've never seen it so high.

I was hoping to get some crafting done, but I've got to clean up a bit - we're having some of our windows replaced tomorrow so things need to be tidied and moved.

Hope everyone has a good Monday!


  1. That really was wild water and quite staggering now that I know it was a lake. It looks like the sea in a storm. Hope you managed to get some crafting done and that indeed all goes well with the windows.

  2. That is as good as being by the sea, would love to be able to see that on a regular basis.

  3. We've not had rain as bad as yours. Just a little mizzly today but we do now have a strong wind.

  4. Good of you to go walking even if it was raining, windy, and cloudy! I should be more like you and walk, no matter what the weather! It is sunny and hot, here, so I have no excuse for not walking! Hope the week ahead is a good one for you and you get some nice walking weather.
