This afternoon's weather has lifted my mood and I know it's because of the sunshine. Yesterday I felt like staying indoors all day and eating, but I put all that behind me today. I do believe that spring is on its way, although there are still some high winds and heavy rain to come.
The sound of flowing water is never far away down here and you could generate a serious amount of hydro-electricity from the force of the weir. The valley has filled up with geese who seem very at home along the railway in the huge swampy puddles. Roll on springtime!
