Not even the pelicans were flying

How the weather has changed in 3 short weeks! This was taken on the last day of August - a cold, wet and miserable day; so miserable, not even the Pelicans could be bothered to take off (there are 4 of them sitting on the mudflat in this photo).


The jacket, leg warmers and gloves with long fingers are about to go into storage for 6 months - they are no longer required, even at dawn. I had a pleasant 2 hour ride yesterday, and returned with the makings of a tan, which is saying something as my forearms have not seen sunlight for months.
