Looks like you had the same temperature as here in Florida. There was not a cloud in the sky today. Spent the afternoon floating in the pool. SWMBO is now deeply engrossed with "Dancing with the Stars" (Len and Bruno), while I attack a slice of Key Lime pie. We booked the condo for 2019 today - something to look forward to.

Certainly wasn't widespread BB, I think we got to about 25 or so. Sounds lovely where you are though. R-

Northolt is only 15 miles as the crow flies from here although it could be in a different world.


Glad your having a relaxing time BB.

Lovely day here as well - not so good at Ribblehead.

Looks like another nice day - it's only 7.55am and it's a clear blue sky. Just about to have breakfast.

The Hornby announcements weren't particularly exciting.

Don't know about anyone else BB - but I'm getting a "bad link" error message for your attachment. R-

I've removed the link - and I'd already deleted the photo on Flickr - so you'll have to take my word for it that the sun is out. We're on the fourth floor overlooking the Intracoastal just before it goes into the Gulf of Mexico, and the building is only about twenty feet back from the sea wall - being that little bit higher means you can see dolphin and manatees as they go by. The balcony does not get full sun until about 3pm, which is good as you can have lunch outside without getting burnt. The pool is at the front of the building - about a one minute walk. It's a big complex - I think I read there are 3500 condo's - but there are lakes and the grass is cut twice a week, and as soon as a flower wilts they dig it out and plant another - the complex covers a large area - both sides of a six lane highway. The good thing is that the place is fairly empty - everyone who was here for the winter have gone home, and the condo rental cost in May drops by $1000 - so May is a good time to come - Hurricane season starts on June 1st. This link will give you an idea of the size of the place.

Was wonderful morning but now across the valley towards Scotland the sky is black as the ace of spades.
Dont think will have to water the garden today.
