Milford day four. Tuesday morning and it’s raining again. We often get rain in September (this is North Wales after all) but it’s been pretty relentless so far; not heavy (mostly) but persistent, with few breaks. As I type, another shower has started, pattering on my window. The stream which runs down behind the Plas (main house) is no longer simply burbling, it’s rushing, shooting over its rocky bed into miniature waterfalls and rapids before emptying out into the lake, Llyn Nantlle.
Breakfast this morning was a mixture of people looking stupefied (me amongst them) while Matt and Steph had a deep conversation about the modern state of being, virtual reality, and the singularity. All I could think was, ‘This is a nice banana.’
We have a long critique session this afternoon, with six pieces to put through the grinder instead of five, so we’ve asked for lunch half an hour early so we’ll make a start on the crits at 12.30 instead of 1.00.
Matt Colborne managed a good panoramic shot of the Milford crit room yesterday. Thanks, Matt.
