The turbulence of nature and politics

The turbulent vista of the images of the waterfall (below) is reminiscent of the state of current British politics!
I took a break recently, to visit West Macedonia. We drove through beautiful wild, majestic mountainous regions with impressive skiing slopes, fast flowing rivers, waterfalls and lakes, passing abandoned villages with magnificent vistas, but only very few people.
The birds swimming in the lake, with the town in the background, are pelicans, native to this region, and they are swimming in Kastoria lake. So similar are the views, that my Skopelos neighbour mistook them for swans in Skopelos harbour!
We stopped for what proved to be a delicious meal in a fish taverna on the Small Prespa lake, where the agreement between Greece and Northern Macedonia was signed and the border between the two neighbour states, finally, after decades, opened.
Let us hope that the turbulence of British politics is sorted, hopefully soon.
