Enjoying real weather

Where in the world could you enjoy such contrasting weather in the same afternoon?











The clue is in this third photo.

  2. Lovely pictures!
    A Sherlock Holmey context, I believe, but the same could happen in my neck of the seas 😉

    Margot 😉

    Dorte, I expect the North Sea can bring as changeable weather as the English Channel. But I still think it is wetter in Devon. 😉

    That does look like lovely weather.

    In the deep South (Alabama), you can have clear skies, then very shortly afterward, afternoon thundershowers, which clear up in under an hour. And on the California coast (Santa Barbara) we often have May and June days which begin with overcast and change to clear skies without warning. I love those kinds of days, and I like the sun to come out later in the day.

    Those photos are beautiful. However, New York City can have torrential rains in April and May, followed by sunny skies. It seems to be even more so since global warming increased so drastically.

    I’m sure Devon is lovely no matter what the weather.

      Thanks Tracy and Kathy on our transatlantic holidays we have experienced some “real weather” in your beautiful country.
      But for sheer consistent wet weather Devon and in the North of England, the Lake District/Cumbria must take the prize. I think what makes Devon so special is that we have the coast and the high moor of Dartmoor within a few miles of each other.

    It sounds and looks gorgeous. I really do wish I could visit, but as I cannot handle airplane trips within the US, probably won’t go outside of the US.

    • Norman Price says:

      Tracy, I have heard that internal US flights are a bit like our crowded commuter trains. The one trip I didn’t hire a car, during the 1979 gas crisis, we travelled on Greyhound buses and trains.
      But I think an international flight would be more pleasant experience for you.
