It was certainly a very rainy day last Thursday - I almost was soaked through taking pictures of a postbox then, not this one (although it did start to rain...)

Ruthin, Wales ?

It was dry until around 3:00 pm where we were last Thursday, Wednesday was lovely though - all the beaches we tried to go to were packed and the car parks chokka.

Puffin found it! I wonder if I can get to it later and post some letters (or whether it'll be the other yarnbombed postbox that'll get fed!). Nooo.... 9am collection! Will use the other postbox.
