I needed some fresh air- and it was certainly fresh this morning - after a hectic start to the day. The tide was coming in and the wind was from the North but not quite the right direction for big crashing waves. There was a lot of turbulence and a few big splashes but nothing very dramatic - a bit disappointing really. Some blue sky might have helped but it was an insipid shade of grey despite some weak sunshine. It is forecast to be warmer later in the week but I did spy a big blob of blue ( not a real meteorological term ) over us on the weather map for Friday. Typical!
