When I walked down the avenue the next morning, the sun was just emerging over the hills, producing a wonderful halo effect.
The fallen leaves on the road were lit up as if they were in spotlight.
But the wind was rising. By lunchtime, the clouds had rolled in and by mid-afternoon so had the rain. It was the beginning of what was to be a very stormy week, as we now know. However, let’s leave this visit to the Abbey on a more sunny note.
