A trip north.

A trip 3hrs north yesterday to visit our son at University. He has been quite unwell with Glandular Fever, but, although still tired, seems to be recovering. We set off early in the rain & on arrival it was still only 8 C up there. Whilst a lot of OS people would think this mild, we do not experience such extremes as daytime minus temps here. The clouds were amazing, hanging low over the hills, DH & I had a lovely trip looking at the gorgeous autumn trees....I love seeing the trees change colour.
Clouds heading north...looked like a wave rolling toward us...
sadly the trees at his uni had already dropped...
and a partial rainbow leading us home. It was nice to go & spend the day with him...boys that age are funny- happy to see you, be fed, be bought a warm jacket, then happy to wave goodbye! Got to love them!
Thanks for sharing our day.

Glandular Fever is horrible. My two youngest sons had it while they were at primary school. Hopefully the tiredness wont linger too long for your son. 8 C sounds ridiculously cold to me! Kim :)

hmm so much for an e-mailcatch up at the weekend, came and went all too quickly! Hope your boy recovers from his GF. Have a great week!

I taught/studied at UNE for a year and know how cold it gets - snowed when I was there! I hope you boy is OK - I'm sure he has plenty of friends to keep an eye on him.

The trees look familiar, I think. I believe I may have been driving through this town on the same day.....late in the afternoon....
Hope DS is going ok, it's hard being away from home and not well.
