The reason for this decision was that the sun appeared from nowhere.
After a dull, windy and nothing kind of day, this sunshine appeared and the world lit up, albeit through the bathroom window...
So, 10 minutes of putting on thermals, extra socks, hat, scarf, gloves and boots, we ventured out.

The wind was so strong that I could hardly hold the camera still, hence this 'impressionist' image of Sophia.
Sophia and Eleanor weigh less together than I do alone, so they could hardly stand up and Sophia retreated to the warmth of the house. Eleanor and I decided to go to the sea. As I was the one with glasses, I was designated leader so that she could completely cover her face and be led, blind, past the big hole from last year and down to the waters edge. Before we got to the big windy bay, we stopped just above the harbour where it looks from this image to be perfectly calm... (fabulous hat)
So to the wide bay.....
It's impossible to get a feel for the wind from these, but bear in mind that the 'white horses' were a long long way out and seemed to go back to the horizon. Such a sense of insignificance against the elements. Luckily, we had fought the wind against us on the way to the bay, so we were pushed back home again with the wind on our backs - safe and ready for the next storm.
Tomorrow should be ok to get to the studio, so I am hoping to do some drawings. Until next time.
