Very innovating locomotion mechanisms, Chris...tandem water skiing behind a wind-powered umbrella...
Chris: They were travelling very fast Ray, propelled by the howling wind and their desire to hit the hot spots in town
This looks a lot like Bath to me Chris... but i love the shot....petersmile
Chris: Thank you Peter: it is Bath but the sentiment is Droitwich

Are you heading for the Holburn Museum or are you heading to Pulteney Bridge....
Hope you find some shelter..
Chris: The museum is behind us Astrid. You are starting to know the place!
Awwww. So sweet, Chris. This really tells a story!
Chris: Thank you Ginnie

Rührend! Mother and daughter? It is rainy and windy in Bath!
Chris: We have had no rain for ages now Philine but the clouds are starting to build..

This is a very kind picture, Chris
Chris: I'm glad you think so Lisl
After weeks of sunshine the forecast for tomorrow is for it to p*ss down. It is our book sale day!

Good picture
Chris: Thank you. Well it had to come sooner or later, the rain rather than the book sale..
You have me wanting to share my large golf umbrella this morning Chris. Mrs Scotia reminds me it is unlucky to open one in the house smile Poor wee ladies they are getting a soaking.
Chris: I have always stuck to that superstition myself Scotia

Two of your admirers? I hope you laid down your cloak like a gallant gentleman to help them such an "extreme weather event".
Chris: An extreme weather event (such things did not exist not so very long ago) means everything is cancelled - in this instance any attempt on my part at gallantry

That is a long road to do battle with the wind and rain.
Chris: This street is a real wind-tunnel for a lot of the year Mike, as I'm sure you know
Ah, so sweet, Chris. I hope they found shelter soon.
Chris: I'm sure they did Pauline
We could use some of that Droitwich stuff, Chris. Even I am starting to wilt.
Chris: Oh dear, sounds like PEI is broiling!
I suspect that this is a very underhand attempt to denigrate sunny Droitwich smile
Chris: Not at all Tom: this is a blatantly obvious attempt to smear the name and reputation of Droitwich by associating it with pictures of inclement weather
I can imagine the howling wind and driving rain - great photo Chris smile
Chris: A not nice place to be in a westerly gale Martin

You picked a hard time to lead me Lucille ...
Chris: But it is character forming
I often wonder why people fight with their umbrellas in the wind and rain, it always ends up having to buy a new one.
Chris: Better to stay indoors really..

It's Friday, it's raining and a young man's thought turn to Droitwich.
Chris: And ours do too Chad

Lovely .... I might be back ... might is the operative word
Chris: Dicky Baby - where have you been?
Awww... This is such a touching & poignant image, Chris. Makes me want to bring them proper sized umbrella. Hopefully, they were able to dry off and warm up after this wet journey.
