After the storm – Ink in a Watercolour Moleskine

The scene, last Monday afternoon, on our local golf course. Our game had just finished when this incredible storm rushed through. This is, to the best of my memory, how it looked as the clouds rushed towards Edinburgh. They say one should never shelter under trees in a violent storm. Guess where we went? If lightning had accompanied this deluge we would have made a run for the clubhouse. One of our party remembered the quote by the American golfer, Lee Trevino when asked what to do when lightning occurred on a golf course. His advice was to march up the fairway, holding a 1 iron (The most difficult club in the bag). This was, he explained, because “Even God cannot hit a 1 Iron.”
