Not sure where 'gentle breeze' and 'pleasant breeze' came from in El Cotillo as Tindaya had hot, gale force winds from first light until mid-afternoon, when the wind disappeared completely. Reached 48C in direct sun and 38C in windy shade. Breeze just starting to pick up again now. Has stayed 26C all evening.
