The long dry period came to and end with a loads of thunderstorms last night but the sun came out today just in time for a visit to the local rowing club.  Being a seaside location they row Cornish pilot gigs and I had my first taste of  gig rowing.  I'm glad to report that I managed, in finest coarse rowing tradition, to get the sea in my trousers, catch several crabs and break a thole pin.  great exercise, will back again next weekend.

We got back off the water just in time for the cloud to roll back in and the rain to fall again.
