As predicted, the weather has improved as soon as the kids have gone back to school! I wouldn't say it was perfect but we've had some good sunshine with a few showers over the last few days. The photo is a view from the balcony looking up the valley. We managed to do a load in the garden, spreading seaweed over the beds, and having a bit of a tidy up. There has also been some wind! A couple of really good sessions, particularly at Gowlane on Sunday, with lovely head high waves - it was pretty busy though, with a few windsurfers, surfers, body boarders, and stand up paddlers! Its now getting to the time of year when all the windsurfers arrive for wind and waves, so we're starting to see a few familiar visitors at the beach. Rachel and Caitlin are having a couple of days house sitting for Corinne and Dan, so they have a dog, two cats, a lizard and two snakes to look after. Caitlin loves it because it means walking the dog, and generally getting very wet and muddy!
