First BIG Downpour of Rain

Well last night brought the first major rains and a big thunder storm which is always exciting. We have woken up to a nice clean feel in the air with rain settling some of the dust after months and months of no proper rain. I just love the 'soily' smell in the air after it rains out here.

Forecast for today is for the wind to increase later on so hopefully we will get a good windsurf in down at Ghallis and the wind should hold for tomorrow too. So it looks like a good start to the weekend!
