The floodwater on the Somerset Levels may be long gone but the knock-on effects of the winter crisis are still being felt by the tourism industry.
It's worth around a billion pounds to the county's economy and supports 30,000 jobs but, as the holidays begin, some businesses say trade is down 25%.
At the family-run Brean Leisure Park, the holidays have begun - schools further north have broken up already and caravan parks are busy but business overall is down and Richard House from Brean Leisure Park says the memory of the floods is to blame.
They're investing in their business here - a new indoor play area, delayed by months because of the bad weather in the winter, should be open this weekend. There's a new extension to the splash pool complex on the way too, all helping to expand a business which now employs around 250 people. Smaller scale businesses, working on tighter margins, are feeling the effects much more acutely.
Some businesses are reporting a 25% drop in trade, partly down to the fact that the floods were at their height just when people were booking their holidays and they simply chose to go elsewhere.
Des Chalmers, a Guest House owner, says they have been unusually quiet for the time of year.
Tourists enjoying the sunshine said they weren't put off visiting the area. The President of the Somerset Tourism Association says it's important to let people know that Somerset is back up and running, despite the damage suffered earlier in the year.
Local business owners hope that the sunny weather will continue, and tempt a few more people to make last minute bookings as the holidays season gets underway.
