The ups and downs of British weather

I'm still undecided as to whether to go to Cricieth today. It was lovely and sunny again first thing. I looked out of the window to see the bunny from a couple of doors away sitting on the rock outside our front door. I couldn't resist taking another photo.

Or then again, perhaps I'll have an early lunch and go and look at castles after all?
