The weather has been decidedly miserable. Thunder-storms, drizzle and grey skies do nothing for the soul. I have been at the coast and the sea is a multiude of colours. Where the waves have churned up the sea-bed close to the shoreline it is a dirty white colour turning grey and dark as it moves out to the deeps.

I am also returning from the coast with another dog. I have fostered Squiff to save him from the gallows. He is a barker and after several denuncia (where a neighbour or such like denounce you to the police), his safest option was thought to be moved away, safe from the euthanasia needle.

So, I have been a good Samaritan this weekend - that'll teach me to drink too much wine!  ;0)
