We have been battered by STRONG winds and rain last night and the weather prophets said it will continue into tomorrow - so it will be a cosy indoors day with good coffee and my wife promised to make us her amazing Mushroom soup. Smile
The windy photo is from Langebaan next to Club Mykonos taken some three weeks ago. Langebaan is a favourite wind and kite surfing spot.
Thank you so much for all the V & C's on my Ugly bird - I do not really think it is ugly - just different Smile
Have a brilliant day !!
