Who Did the Rain Dance?

Despite a very wet and rainy day in God's own county (Yorkshire) this Bank Holiday Monday, it didn't stop me venturing around and about...

Above is a picture taken from the South Bank of the River Humber (which is in North Lincolnshire but looks toward East Yorkshire on the North Bank) as a rain storm is approaching from the west this afternoon around 4 pm.

Just a few yards behind me at the Barton upon Humber - Humber Bridge Viewing Site is one of the many small ponds varying in size which offer a haven for wildlife and leisure facilities for fresh water fishing. (Picture below.) A lovely place to walk with the family.

For once, I've no complaints about the weather and a days rain is very welcome indeed. My friend Barry stated on his Twitter account today that the place smells different after a rain storm, the colours are different and indeed he is right - it is a unique smell. Wherever in the world you are, I hope you enjoyed your Monday. Back to work tomorrow.

  3. We stood in just about that same place a fortnight ago. I was impressed with the visitor centre. There were lots of chicks of various kinds on that water and it was interesting to see the estuary. When we came home we looked up all the rivers that flow into it - my goodness, it empties an enormous area of the country.

  4. Hi Auntiegwen - there's no discrimination with the weather... it drenches rich and poor (in my case poor!)

    Hi Jarmara - no problem - we do need it... perhaps another one for raining just overnight.

    Hi Weaver
    I remember you saying you were there - I didn't have time to go to the visitors centre, but I'm on hols shortly, not going away and I intend to go and have a visit. There is no doubt that the Humber is a very important river.
