Caleta.

Yesterday, pretty much as forecast, except if you get shelter from the wind, it was very pleasant, and temp on a sheltered section of one of the terraces reached 23 C, however, a haze started to build around 10:00, which may suggest a Calima again.

Today. 07:45

After rain overnight, it was a very grey start.

Temp. 16 C.

Wind. Northerly 18/20 Mph.

Visibility. Very Good. { No Calima then }

Humidity. 66%

Sea. a 5/6 Ft swell.

UV. 5

Forecast:- A mostly cloudy day, cloud to break slightly as the morning goes on, but build again late afternoon, wind to ease slightly 15/17 Mph late morning, temp not to exceed 19 C.

Will post some images later if I see anything that is not grey  ::)

Another nice day although not quite as good as yesterday. Some low cloud in the pass early on and a worrying 'red in the morning......'!
The slight breeze veered round to the East and even SE for a while but soon returned to N/NE.
