I am always asked, “how are you coping with the weather?” I haven’t found it terrible at all. When it rains, it’s usually for a short amount of time and certainly not the cold of Canada. And sometimes we even see the sun!!
One of the best things here is the Pub culture . My local pub is called ‘The Old Spring’, very upscale, excellent food and if you pop in for coffee, or even a glass of water, there’s always a welcome. Plus a very diverse group of regulars from every walk of life, even if I just go in once a week (nice greeting).
In the last blog I mentioned meeting a gentleman at the airport. Well he turned out to be what I would call a Country Squire. He has a magnificent house with 25 acres, outside of South Hampton, where he has racehorses and jumpers with all the bells and whistles, see pictures below!!
