Winter is back

Monday 12th January 2009
Winter has started again, when we woke up this morning it was cold, it probably wasn’t cold compared to the UK, but we’re sure it must have gone below 16 ֯ C.
By about 10am the weather had warmed up a bit and it was quite nice outside, there was still a bit of chill in the air if you were in the shade, South West winds you know, so we stood in the sun.
The Café was fair bit quieter today than it has been for the last few weeks, according to the locals there aren’t as many tourists around this summer, probably worried by all the scaremongering in the press about the global recession that either will or will not affect us whether we like it or not.
After work we went down to the beach, that means the temperature must have been over 26 ֯ C. we must be acclimatising because when we were in the UK we would have been on the Beach at 16 ֯ C, now we think that is cold.

Not building igloos just yet then?
