Good morning from Caleta

Another day yesterday that went much as forecast with the cloud clearing to leave a nice late morning and afternoon.  When I am able to post some pictures they will be mainly of Gran Tarajal where we went to see the cruise ship that had berthed there and the town had put on a great family day to mark the occasion. Driving back late afternoon the sun & shadows on the mountains was breathtaking.

This morning at 6.30am 70% cloud cover, 16C and little or no wind, by 7.10am the cloud is reducing, and there is a little condensation on the car.

Todays Caleta forecast- Cloud to clear by 10am to leave a sunny day with temperature reaching 24C by 1pm with a UV factor of 4 at mid-day, visibility good at 16km+
Wind from the NE to E during the day fairly light at 6 to 9mph
