Ah a nice morning at last. Nice as in the sun being out and bright and cheery!

Yes the sun is out and it's a fine morning with some white cloud adding to the beauty of the scenery. No wind. Not had many of these this season.

And no doubt many weekend visitors will be happy.

Tomorrow a good chance of more sun.
