And Other Seas…

Just occasionally, after very heavy rain, the fields behind our house can flood. It’s a rare occurrence, but the downpours towards the end of November brought the most extreme flooding we’ve seen in our time here…

This is what it looked like on the Thursday morning. On the Wednesday evening I’d driven through water which, I suspect, I would have baulked at in daylight. After I took this photo, we struggled to commute into Lancaster, having to turn back twice where roads were closed.

Of course, every cloud has it’s proverbial silver lining. Where I saw flooding, the DBs saw an opportunity. On the Wednesday night they’d already been out together for a ‘paddle’, or more accurately, a wade, in the temporary lake. On the Thursday they decided to go one better.

It was windy, and pretty cold, so we didn’t stay out for long, but it was an unusual experience, to say the least.

      It fairly quickly disappeared, but looking out of the window at the moment I’m thinking it might soon be back!

      They didn’t seem to think that they needed permission. In fact they were a bit surprised that I wanted to go with them, but I didn’t want to miss it for a couple of obvious reasons.
