Driving in the rain, again – part one

A drive to Hereford, about 70 miles away, to visit Hereford Cathedral, home of the 13th century Mappa Mundi, and maybe take in the Cider Museum also, seemed like a good idea today.

It’s a cloudy, overcast day but that’s to be expected. According to a proverb: if it rains on St Swithun’s Day it will rain for fourty days. And on July 15th it rained so here we are, 7 days into the 40.
