A fierce Atlantic storm barges in from the Bay of Biscay. It brings with it 100 km/h winds and raindrops the size of peas. Faced with this downpour Angus hopes that his post dinner tour of the garden with the PONs will be brief. The PONs, of course, have different ideas. Why let a little rain dampen your enthusiasm ? What better time to saunter and sniff ?
This morning Sophie heads off through the storm to the farthest reaches of the orchard in pursuit of something only she can see. Bob more sensibly gets in the back of the car and snuggles down in a corner for warmth. This happy arrangement lasts until a sodden Sophie reappears and points out that Bob is in her spot.
At the roundabout the poor camels, yaks and zebras are sheltering under a tent. They are at least dry and are busily engaged in eating breakfast.
The supermarket Sushi counter is running a Halloween special. Perhaps demonic sushi is a thing. If so it's a fad that's passed this blogger by. When did Halloween become so commercial ?
