Tindaya - last few days, and nights - hot, hotter and even hotter with either very, very strong E or SE winds or complete calm, poor visibility. Still 38C at midnight Saturday. Thursday afternoon it reached 48.5C in the shade and pool water temp was 32C!! The wind was unbelievably hot.
Corralejo this morning, hot but not as hot as Tindaya, gentle breeze, limited visibility, mix of sun & clouds, by late afternoon completely overcast and oppressive.

Yesterday, there was no more rain after the brief shower in the morning, and though the Temp reached 29.56 C, it was under a very hazy sky, and a N/Easterly wind of 11/13 Mph, so not the greatest of days, around 18:00 the cloud started to gather.

Temp according to my phone was 36.4, there was an Easterly wind circa 30/35 Mph, the photographs do no justice to the waves some were 5 Metre+ high.
And as can be seen no shortage of ducks.

Actually I know why, I was about 20 Ft above them, which makes you lose perspective, I have a mate back in The UK who is a professional photographer, and he would have ben on the beach lying on hid=s stomach looking upwards at them, makes a hell of a difference, if you can be arsed ::)
