Yesterday's rain has moved away from the area, pushed by a howling wind. Listen...

As I headed for the coast in the middle of the afternoon I saw a hawk floating, swerving, riding thermals, pushed by the wind. How strong was it? I found it to be quite difficult to stand in one position without swaying.

I started my walk along the waterfront in Portsmouth where I was treated to the sight of a lift bridge opening to allow a large ship to pass through. I continued down the coast, enjoying the crisp air, a blue sky decorated with puffs of white, a quiet ocean at low tide.
