    Congratulations.

    My Mrs P and I will have been together 41 years come August and married for 39 in November. Did or where any of us able to look that far ahead in our youth? I know I couldn't.

    Cloudy and breezy day here on the Costa del Sol, out for the rescue dog walking in the hills and maybe a wee road trip somewhere for lunch.

    13th June 1981
    "Snow was visible on the North Pennines above 2300ft with temps in the Highlands only reaching 1-2C. In Penrith, N Pennines, it was raining heavily with afternoon readings of just 4-5C, quite remarkable for daytime temps in early June and especially when temps touched 26C just days prior. Snow was visible over the N Pennines after the clouds broke."

    And the Queen was shot at.

    Well '68 was
    "The temperature rose above 32C. on the first day of the month, but after a few spots of thundery rain, contaminated by Saharan dust, the 2nd was less hot, and the 3rd was sunny but cool and fresh. The rest of the first week was dry and rather warm with sunny spells. It then became unsettled at times, and on the 10th it was cool and wet with 24mm of rain and a high of only 17C Cool and cloudy northerly winds developed several times during the rest of July."

    Millennium Path today not much better than yesterday. Dog doesn't like going that way anyhow, but it's a popular route with cyclists. Not a complaint though, we're lucky to have it to use. IMG_20190612_123417.jpg

    Just popped over to Calis to see the amazing sunset they have there, on the way back across Fethiye bay the sky was slight with a lightning storm, currently sitting outside at our favourite interesting dinner.
