At times, during the peak of our summer sou’easterly winds we head to our favoured, sheltered nooks in the mountain. At lower levels it can be sublime. At higher altitudes an engaging action of turmoil, as earth-warmed air rises to greet the cooler mountain tops, a meteorological drama unfolds.

How far away is this from your place, Liz? It looks lovely, beautiful scenery.

Thanks Dina, yes it’s quite divine being far from the madding crowd. Fortunately it’s not far, about 20 minutes by car.
