Don't recall actually seeing the sun today! Perhaps it shone in Tindaya while I was in Corralejo this morning. Heavy showers as I went through La Oliva and Villaverde around 9.30am and evidence it had rained in Corralejo when I got there. More showers on the way home late morning but not a drop in Tindaya. Friend told me there had been heavy rain in Puerto today - nice for the cruise passengers!  ;D







Didn't see the sun but the moon was in evidence now and again between the clouds:

A bright and sunny day although a lot of cloud around from time to time. Temp struggled as the breeze, although only slight, had a definite chill to it all day.







By chance spotted the moon rising over Mta Tindaya (an Egyptian pyramid according to some British tourists I overheard the other day!!) while I was out walking:

Temp never got north of 21 C and with a North East wind felt considerably colder.

After the first night, we have ever spent on The island with all the windows closed dawn brought an uninspiring start, 98% cloud cover, temp around 16 c and a Northerly wind of 15/17 Mph.

Temp. 18 C.

Wind. N/N/Easterly 15/17 Mph.

Visibility. Excellent.

Humidity. 53 %.

Sea. A 2/3 ft swell.

UV. 5.

Forecast:- Temp to struggle to high teens may be low twenties, but with the wind staying as is will feeler closer to 15/16 C. Sun Forecast from tomorrow and for the next 8/9 days, but no lor very little let up from the wind.

Caleta.

Yesterday. Not a day that will be remembered for its weather temp reached 19 C under a grey sky and a N/East wind of 16/18 Mph. I do not think I have ever seen so many people on The Island with coats and scarves on.

A bright blustery start, Temp 18 C, wind N/Easterly 15/17 Mph

08:30





Temp. 18 C

Wind. Easterly 16/18 Mph.

Visibility. Excellent.

Humidity. 53%.

UV. 5

.Forecast:- A bright blustery day, temp to possibly enter the low 20,s wind to remain as is today, and strengthen tomorrow, on the upside, there should be very little cloud today.
