The Red Arrow No Show

In Iceland there’s a popular saying spouted by locals; “if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes”.  Well, the same could be said for Welsh weather right now, although when we hate the weather here we’re more likely to say, “Oh, it’ll come nice, now, in a bit…”

Someone should have let the Red Arrows in on this.  Last Sunday Sunny and I drove down to Barry Island to see them in action over Whitmore Bay (to celebrate the Transport Festival).  Problem was, the weather was doing it’s typical trick of “Here, have some grey skies and hair fluffing drizzle…psych!”  Ten minutes before they were supposed to appear, along came the rain… and ten minutes after they cancelled, along came the sun.  *sigh*

After the Red Arrows cancelled and the rain left us uncomfortably moist, we ducked into my fave Bay 5 for a hot drink 🙂
Nothing is more annoying than drizzle, am I right my bespectacled friends?

When the sun came out we went to have a look at all the classic cars parked up on the front.

Since the weather had improved we walked over the cliffs and down to Jackson Bay.

I dipped my feet in the Bristol Channel – freeeeeeeeeeeezing!  But still, a beach is a beach 🙂
