24 hours

I've been confined indoors for a while but it hasn't stopped me looking out of the window and seeing how changeable the scene is.

The 24 hours started with a thunderstorm followed by a rainbow.

Dawn brought clearer weather. Well, not quite dawn but about 6.00 am.

But there was a haze around and on the horizon it settled into a yellowish smog.  Is that from France?  From the shipping?  I can only assume it's as bad looking in the other direction.

Later the sun came out and I was watching this father and son playing with the kite.  Well the father was playing with the kite while the son watched.  It wasn't until later that I realised I'd managed to catch a view of the massive Thanet Offshore Windfarm on the horizon.  There are 100 turbines in place, and you can only hope they will help reduce that smog.  It may be just possible to see some of the turbines if you click on the photo for a larger size. 

Towards the end of the day this group arrived with a picnic, sat together yet apart, and left shortly afterwards.  You could write stories about why.
