>>Wow! Your side of the Atlantic resembles our "Pacific" Ocean in winter today :-) We spend Thanksgiving at the beach every year, often watching waves like that through rain-soaked windows, and racing out whenever the rain pauses a moment to get some time on the beach. -- Elizabeth R. Jolley

>>Hi Tony Haven't emailed for ages, hope all's well? I've attached an image taken today [Saturday] of the coast at Sheringham in Norfolk, quite a contrast to yours today, thought it might amuse you. We definitely get the better weather this side, still in shorts, just! We sneaked into Coniston and slept overnight in our camper on the road up to Coppermines after coming off the Isle of Man ferry a couple of weeks ago-too late for a campsite, we were gone early! Ambleside for breakfast, lunch and overnight in Hawes! Then home via Peak District. Haven't been back since the flooding a couple of years ago when we couldn't really get out of the village. Hopefully we'll be back for a while before long, may pick up a late deal cottage, prices have shot up since we started coming up there, it's one of the reasons we don't come so often now, sadly. Seemed really very quiet on our early dog walk around the village-no one around, cottages seemed unoccupied. Still looking at your pics everyday, keep up the good work! Cheers Steve

Disclaimer - 'THE WEATHER' is only my personal opinion - if you come to the Lakes and get sunburnt (or soaked ) - the author of this page bears absolutely no responsibility. You are welcome to copy any of these pictures for your own use, but please credit the photographer, Tony Richards, or add a link to these pages. Most pictures taken with a Panasonic Lumix TZ60. Occasionally with my trusty Nikon D50 with a Tamron AF18 - 200mm macro zoom lens, which feels like a tank compared with the Lumix!
