Blackberries in the rain

Well, I've been reading lots of blogs about bad weather and was beginning to feel a bit guilty that I still needed suncream and my washing was getting line dry every day......
...the bubble has burst!!!
I've made a new holiday rule - if we have no plans we must go out of the house for at least an hour - just for a walk or to the park.....I started today.
Well the heavens opened when I got to the end of the road but we carried on (mainly as I thought it would blow over!!!) - I wish we had worn our welly boots but I had 1 perfectly behaved 3 yr old who didn't moan once for the whole hour and a half out...(I know a 13yr old who couldn't have manage that lol!!!)

I took my camera - thinking I could show you some lovely sea views.....
its a bit miserable!!! (Actually its not much better on a fine day to be honest lol!!!)

We found some blackberries....still lots of red ones so we may rope daddy into a picking for jam session at the weekend!!!
But theres enough for a pie or...even better a crumble - yum!!! Bang goes the diet for the week again!!!

Good for you getting out in all the RAIN!

It's been pouring most of the day here too, but I did manage to get out and about and sat outside with a friend at a cafe (under a canopy).

Thanks for your welcome comment on my blog!

I'm sick of rain but good for you for taking the little uns out in it. Sometime going out and getting wet makes you appreciate coming back to a warm dry house.
Hope you get some better pics of the area soon.
