So now you know. All this trick or treating is an American tradition.
As we live in the middle of nowhere/the countryside we do not have to worry about small or larger children battering the door down and threatening us.
Back to today.
The forecast was for heavy rain. I looked out of the window. We had had some rain. However I went to the Esplanade and was rewarded big time.
It was warm -ish, no wind, no rain while I was there, though there obviously had been quite a lot. And you can see rain falling out on the horizon. I just gazed and gazed. This is why I go to the beach. Nature is a far better artist than I.
Some of the Oystercatchers are looking a bit rough around the edges. But that is normal as their plumage is being sorted for winter. Following their summer of rearing offspring. Harrowing as those of us who have kids know well
There were a few Redshanks zooming about catching insects.
Boats racing for home.
And one off out 'on the hunt'.
Back to boring. My printer refused to accept it had a full, new print cartridge installed. The DP went off with instructions to buy another ink cartridge . He returned with a new PRINTER as it was cheaper to buy a new printer than a set of cartridges for the old one. This is insane. Plus the ink cartridges for the new printer were cheaper than the old one. With me so far? So I now have a new printer. Which works. And does wireless which the old one said it could but never did. So I now have a useless cable which I had to buy for the old one to use it as it did not do wireless as it said it would. I think it is time to lie down in a darkened room.
So I will leave you with a video. Happy Samhain. Pronounced Sahwin.
