HMS Portland

HMS Portland sailed past some bobbers yesterday, the crew and the bobbers waved excitedly because for some reason it seems rude not to acknowledge one another in relatively close proximity. It was a very chilly swim, but it was probably quite cold standing on deck and waving, so both sides may have welcomed the extra exercise.

Our winter eyebrow growth was removed yesterday all wandering upper facial hair either removed or gathered tidily into graceful arches which can be risen or lowered as situations require. Who could have guessed that ten minutes after this pastoral scene the eyebrows were raised because  of the weather.

We were on the A303 near Stonehenge and  there was the usual traffic queue, so we took a usual detour via Shrewton to avoid the standstill. Just as we approached the Stonehenge car park black clouds descended and snow was dumped on us.

Not what we expected at all. Newly coiffed eyebrows were raised. Getting that cold twice in one day is not acceptable in April. Traffic jam avoided we carried on our journey. Returning to sunshine remarkably quickly.

Sunshine on a Saturday, just what is needed!
