Today was caravan day. My kids decided another evening and night was to be had in the caravan. So we made burgers on the grill and ate them in the caravan followed by a game of Upwords (which I lost). Before it got too dark to see (and too cold) we plugged the caravan into the house and as I was feeding the cable through the window. I had a peep in the drain inspection pipe and saw water… A sure sign that the septic tank had backed up again.
So in trepidation I opened the lid and sure enough…it had. It wasn’t the worst it has ever been, but it was a very, very close second. An hour later we got it cleared. Luckily I have absolutely no sense of smell!
Anyway after getting cleaned up, we went back into the caravan for a game of Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit…and I won 😂.
At 23.00 those that were going into the house did so. Looks like the light nights will be here very soon.
Sadly I missed most of the bits calls, but we have an Oyster catcher or two and I think a redshank with a couple of Snipe drumming. Quite a peaceful evening.
Soon we will have 23 hours of daylight and a bit of dusk. It doesn’t get dark at all really.
The down side is we won’t get to see this for a good while…
The top photo and the one above are taken in exactly the same spot. This was the sky in its green stage… I have it in the red and rainbow stages too. Just can’t find them right now.
