Not long after Storms Gertrude and Henry, and hours before Storm Imogen, I was able to pop out for a little while to remind myself that this is still a beautiful part of the world, despite a seemingly endless succession of storms this winter.
We walked the dog through Sandpit Marsh near Christchurch on the south coast of England, which has not suffered as badly as northern areas under the recent storms, although Imogen could be another story. I ignored the puddles and muddy pathways, and managed to get some quite nice pictures of this local nature reserve.
As we drove home, the radio presenter announced that, because of 80 mph winds and high waves, the ferry companies have now cancelled many crossings. Whilst writing this short post, the lights have flickered on and off as the winds have built up, but hopefully the electricity will last the night! My journey back to Bonn in the morning could be a challenging one, but for tonight, I will batten down the hatches and enjoy being on this beautiful island!
