Water Water every where.
This picture is just one of many we took on some of Dartmoors village roads. It shows that there is still a lot of snow up here. My next blog wil have some nice pictures of Snowy Dartmoor.
Please click on any picture to enlarge it.
The picture below is of what 10 days ago was a farmers yard and field. The "Lake" in the back ground in actual fact is just a grazing field for Horses swollen with flood water.
Below again normal fields, part of the same huge false lake in the above picture.
The local bird life soon find the abundant food in these type of waters, arriving in great numbers.
Below, again the same inland temporary lake, I think due to melting snow and a forecast of more rain it could even get bigger !!!.
As you can see, like its title Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink (a bit mucky).
This final picture was taken on the way down just outside of Ashburton, we had to go through several fords of flood water, this was just one of them.
At the end of all my blogs I always do a joke of the day. Today I decided that, after seeing all this water that as a mark of respect for the plight of the Australian people i would not do one. Lets hope they get just a little of our rain to help put out those terrible fires.
