So, it actually stopped raining for about an hour and a half, which is amazing. I know I like to give the UK a lot of shit about being rainy and having no sun or blue sky, but this year has been kind of ridiculous and now I'm regretting all that teasing I've done.
But yes! Sun! Or at least lack of rain! Fresh air! We went to Slimbridge Wetland Centre, which is a little reserve for aquatic birds. I'm not much of a bird person (though I think my parents would love it) but I still had fun seeing all the pretty and exceedingly talkative animals.
Have some photos.
