Gorgeous day in Tindaya after a cool, cloudy start. Hot sun (v. hot!) and no wind. Chilled down quickly as the sun set getting quite a damp feel to the air. Still no breeze and quite a bit of cloud around (no stars). Hope the mains water is back on tomorrow as plants are going to need some - forecast is for warmer than today.

The forecast for the coming week is great. Sunshine, no cloud, and only a very gentle breeze.



8.45am. Overcast, with a very slight breeze. Temperature 22°C.






That's it from me for a few weeks, back to the UK today to cut some grass! Live reports to resume November.

Gorgeous day, again. Lovely run of calm days. A few clouds around today but most stayed over to the east, not sure if they were over the east of the island or off the east coast.

Looking north, early evening (Range just south of El Cotillo in distance):


South at the same time (Betancuria range in distance):


East (range between Tindaya and La Matilla):


West, about 20 minutes later:


NorthEast (Mta Tindaya on left of picture, pass through to Vallebron in far centre):


West, after another 5 and 10 minutes:
