full up

25°C; !; no wind. Perfect conditions.
Summer is moving into it’s last phase, the colours are fading, straw is everywhere and most of the grain harvest it is in. That means no more arriving home with a deep-chest cough from the clouds of brown dust whippped up by combine-harvesters. The downside of that is that the tractors are being released for hedge-trimming- the cause of 4 punctures already this week. I’m not complaining though, it is quite rare these days toget that many flats.
Dead trees everywhere.
Where are the wasps? Most years I have clocked up a few stings by now.
I have clocked up 68 miles today, but got home unusually tired which I blame an inadequate meal yesterday for that. The last ten miles near home I could see purple spots, and I felt quite wobbly on arrival.
One spoke needs fixing.

Tomorrow I go to Wales for a few days. There are reports of large schools of dolphins inshore so I wil pack a pair of binoculars. The dogs like the beach as much as we do.
