On 12th of this month we saw cattle standing knee-high in the river cooling off.
While we were blessed with good weather in Czech in late September, here our October weather is spectacular. Clearly, the word ‘spectacular’ refers to ‘a spectacle’; I see that one dictionary describes it as “marked by, or given, to an impressive, large scale display.”
The October sunlight over my local bay certainly fulfills that definition, miles of gleaming sandbanks threaded with small waterways along which the wintering birds forage or roost in the sun.
