It’s nice (and wet) up north

In the May edition you reported predictions of a heat-wave.

Well, maybe you did get one by the Mediterranean but up here in Brittany we’ve had about a score of days this year when it has been just about warm enough to sit outside.  

If I can see the other side of the bay (of Morlaix), it means it’s going to rain: if I can’t, it means it’s already raining.

You’ve got the choice in France: wall-to-wall sunshine but all the vegetation burnt to a frazzle, or a climate where it’s forever raining but a lovely green landscape. There’s no doubt which I prefer: Now, where did I put my umbrella?
