Sunny and Hot!!

Yesterday the weather was very good – a bit overcast in the morning, but sunny and warm in the afternoon. Today was sunny and hot! We spent the afternoon walking around the town of Devizes – walking along the Kennet and Avon Canal, walking around the town, getting some sandwiches and eating them on a bench beside the canal (because all the pubs stopped serving lunch on the dot of 2pm and we are always running a bit late).

Hot and sunny all day. We came back to the cottage and watched the 6pm BBC news and weather. The weather showed big thunderstorms in the southwest, but we looked out the window and it was still sunny and lovely. About 20 minutes later, the skies darkened, the wind started and now we are having the most amazing lightening and thunder.

May is such a wonderful time to be in England.
