Roald Dahl Pass 2-1930

The sun finally came out. Fully. Extensively. Showering the soggy fields that surround the city and peppering the streets with champagne light. It felt like a rare treat.

Sitting at the dock of the bay? Cycling at the dock of the bay? Snapping at the dock of the bay? All three I guess. Enjoy it whilst it lasts. We’re back to the vagaries of the gulf stream tomorrow.
