The iPhone has been on my shopping list for a while. There were good reasons for not buying it immediately - our mobile signal was abysmal following storms, and the recent ones made it even worse. Finally, though, our local mast was up and running again (it's taken 3 years) so the order was placed.

And I waited.....

waited.......

and waited.

Finally I cancelled and bought one somewhere else. 

We live just 5 minutes walk from a beautiful nature reserve. It's so close I can investigate it easily, but it's so large that there are many areas I haven't yet discovered. My plan was simple! Take the iPhone and see what you can find. And then, it started to rain.....

It rained.....

rained...........

and rained. It rained so much the area  was flooded and many paths impassable. To investigate would have been foolhardy, so once again I waited.....

waited......

and waited!

Hooray! Today was a dry day and the waters had apparently subsided. So off I went with my trusty new friend in my hot little hand. Hot little hand? No, in spite of gloves it was cold little hand - it was beautiful, but chilly.....

There is still a lot of water around. This jetty is normally in a dry area. The sign on the left is normally just on the edge of the lake.

Scrub has been cleared - and that beach on the far side is where I wanted to go.

There is still evidence of the rubbish left by the storm, twigs and branches littered the perimeter spoiling many a view of this beautiful spot.

Sadly this was as far as I was able to go today. One day soon I'll make it to the other side, but for today this was the extent of my sojourn.
