Weird Weather

15 Nov


We’ve switched the heating on. When we arrived here less than two weeks ago it didn’t seem possible. The waiters were complaining that the summer just wouldn’t end and, along with everybody else, we were in shorts, something only “tourists” desperate for a tan wear around here at this time of year. It seems to have gone from September to February almost overnight with the temperature forecast to drop still further over the next couple of weeks.

Yet today dawned bright and clear, the chilly wind frothing the waves and sweeping everyone off the beach. Everyone, that is, except the surfers waiting in wetsuits for the highest crests and the illicit dog walkers taking advantage of the empty sand. When the heavenly sprinkler system was turned on this afternoon still the sun shone lighting up the heavy globs of water in star-like profusion. Weird but rather wonderful.
