Our settled run of weather ended last Tuesday with a very wet 24 hours; the rain pelted down without a let-up resulting in some spectacular sounds as small trickles became raging torrents. It's unusual to get a day of solid rain here, usually it's showers breezing over with fine periods inbetween.

It was a social week for me; I went to the 'Wheel of Experience' show on Tuesday night, braving the dark and roaring waters and fortunately managing to walk down to the village and back in the dry. 'Wheel of Experience' tells historical stories through song and all 3 performers were excellent musicians - some of the instruments were intriguing; my favourite sound was from a cigar box slide guitar.
