Brrrrr!

A bright sunny morning, so we thought we'd go up onto Bodmin moor.   It was bright and sunny until we walked some distance away from the car.  THEN it started hailing.  Fortunately, Minions is blessed with a dog-friendly cafe so we dived into it for lunch.

Then the sun came out, so we resumed our walk plan.  We were half way up Caradon Hill when we looked behind us...


Oh dear.  We're going to get wet, aren't we?


But the sun was still shining where we were, so we enjoyed the view of the rainbow on the old mines...


The sun was still sort of shining so we went on to the Monstrous Mast of Bodmin Moor...


And then the hail arrived.  We went down Caradon hill at some speed.  Rosie was not a happy Rosie.  The wind was blowing and the hail was fierce!

I've now just about warmed up again.   The rainbow followed us home and is now lurking outside the house, probably hoping to lure me out again, but I am feeling disinclined to outdoorsiness, and more inclined to sit here toasting my feet by the fire.

At least you got a rainbow. *grump* I set out in sunshine, wearing just a thin hoodie (I always get hot when walking) and no waterproof, only for the sky to darken and ENTIRELY ILLEGAL rain to fall on me when I was 7 miles from home, with no way of getting home other than to retrace my steps. Even as it rained, the sun was peeping through. "At least they'll give me a rainbow," I thought damply, as I turned for home, but they didn't even give me that! Clearly today's rainbow allocation had been given to Cornwall.

We were very much blessed with rainbows today.

Seven miles of rain is very unpleasant, though I will argue with anyone that rain is preferable to the kind of wind that threatens to carry your dog away, and is armed with bitter teeth of ice. We wondered if Fankil was about...

Beautiful (in pictures, at least - I'm sure it was a lot harsher being IN it!)
