    Have I done a Rip Van Winkle

    I'm sure the sun was shining the week I went to bed without a duvet, the birds were singing at 4am,
    I awoke to dark skies, howling wind, torrential downpours and it continues to today. I have a cardigan on to keep warm.
    Have I been asleep for some time .......or is it the School Summer Holidays?

    I know the above was posted in jest... but-

    Welcome to the world of IH.

    Wake up, look at the clock.
    Look at the window to see if it's day or night.
    Look at your phone to see what date it is, and if you have slept through one or two days.

    Like everything else you get used to it.

    ITV weather forecast for tomorrow: overcast, rain, some sunshine.
    Definitely daytime during the day, then.

    The weather up here on the North Coast of Scotland has, at least for me, been terrible. It has been SUN all and every day for the past 8 to 10 days. The temp in my Living Room with All windows and Doors open is 25C to 27C . Just too hot for me. Today it is the coolest it has been for sometime as it is a balmy 24C inside and 27C outside at our front door.

    I will be happy when Autumn comes around, sigh!

    That's perhaps a tiny bit warm if it's day in, day out, Kodiak. I turn do the heating up when it's 21° though.

    I can honestly say some of the beach's are fantastic, Farr Beach, Dunnet Beach and Strathy Beach to name just three. I live just 22 miles west of John O'Groat's which is famous for the Land's End to John O'Groats Charity Walks/Runs etc. Shortest distance between the two is 874 Miles.

    Where I live in Thurso, Thurso Bay is used quite often for Surfing Competitions, here is a Pic of Thurso Bay with Dunnet Head in the background.
