Alrighty, I have been complaining about the rain for a while. Well, exactly 3 weeks if anyone is counting…
This weekend I had friends in town and we ventured out to East London to check out the progress with the Olympic Stadium and then on to Royal Greenwich – the banners posted along the streets were very clear on the ROYAL, so I am making sure I call it out correctly…
Anyway, back to my topic: rain and clouds.
While there I caught some great clouds for you on camera, so all of you far away in tropical fields can see why I have been not quite the happy runner recently. By the way, I do like clouds in photos. They make pictures moody.
These were the clouds we caught just as the rain stopped. The Olympic Stadium looked like it would be swept away by these clouds. By the way, weather.com reinstated their accurate forecasts for London. When I checked in the morning, they said the rain will stop at 3pm. Lo and behold, at 3pm the rain stopped and… gasp… we even caught a little bit of blue sky.
This view is from the top of Greenwich Park, near the Royal Observatory. See the city and the new Shard building in the background? I always love the view over London from Greenwich Park. And I hope you noticed the blue sky peeking out from the clouds!
A promise for better weather to come!
A happy runner again! 🙂
