I am taking a little break from blogging from today for a couple of weeks to enjoy some family time and get some decorating done. I might get the odd thing up but it will be a little quiet whilst we do battle with wallpaper and then afterwards take a few well-earned trips out and about to the beach and forest.
What we have also been doing is Perseid meteor watching and have seen some every evening around Cassiopeia between 11pm and 12am. It has been quite a display and they peak in the UK this Friday evening. This year there are supposed to be at least twice the usual amount of meteors and so far this seems to ring true. You should be pretty much guaranteed to see some in the latter half of every evening on a clear night. Even from our back garden in a town we have been fortunate every evening since Saturday. We are going out in the countryside again later in the week to see more and have found a very good spot in the middle of nowhere. So good, in fact, that on Sunday evening a car pulled up beside ours and told us the view a little further on was even better without asking what on Earth we were doing, indicating we had inadvertently stumbled on a well loved local spot through sheer instinct alone…or blind luck even 😉
I shall see you all soon when I am back – refreshed and hopefully not too sunburnt around the edges 😀
