Plans for a day out to make the most of our jollies were again foiled today by the seriously poor weather. I don't mind rain too much, and I'm even happy to run in it. But a trip to the seaside is not much fun. So we have been again stuck indoors much of the day. I did enjoy a couple of guilty hours watching some old Six Feet Under repeats. In my bored googling this afternoon I happened upon this cool site called Panoramio. The pic is courtesy of a local talent who has captured the current weather beautifully.
In my virtual wandering online I became quite drunk on the fantasy of a career as a freelance photographer, travelling around the world earning my living to fill the pages of National Geographic [sigh]. Trips to Patagonia featured heavily. I think a bit more practice might be needed first though. I keep toying with the idea of a weekend course learning the craft but they always seem so ridiculously expensive. I've also the good fortune of beautiful scenes right on my doorstep. Anyway, have cheered up a bit after running a steady but satisfying 7m out to Ilkley and back. We found a window in the torrential rain and managed a whole run without seeing a drop. Legs are also much better today. Next stop, Nelson.
