We go into town for a pre-dinner drink but all our usual watering holes are full of fashionably dressed but bored Valley girls. From the snippets of conversation we catch it seems they'd be much happier back on Mulholland rather than facing an incoming Scottish snow storm. The Netflix folk have had two days of bright sunshine. The outlook for next week when the filming gets into full swing is less propitious. I'd assumed the crew would arrive, do a couple of days filming and then go. In fact they'll be here for the better part of two weeks. This will make the hotels and restaurants very happy.

The film crew
Down on the shoreline a tiny wader scurrying back and forth. I think it's a Sanderling. They are very comical. The Sanderling ( if that's what it is ) remains unbothered by Sophie who has discovered a healthy respect for waves.
A black spaniel , accompanied by three warmly dressed humans, attracts Sophie's attention. The black spaniel is only interested in a tennis ball a young man is holding and gives the family diva the cold shoulder treatment. Sophie backs away with what I could swear to be a look of incredulity on her face.
Just as we make it back home the long promised snow storm bears in from the sea. The Valley girls will not be happy. They have taken over the biggest 5 star hotel in town so I'm guessing the spa will be working overtime.The film crew numbers must run into the hundreds. Seemingly 'The Crown' is a mega big budget series with production values to match.
