Windy

Today was still hot, but a steady wind had picked up from the north-east. Cousteau-cub and Coventry Hobbit were diving and the forecast included some rain.

A brief run to the shops ensured we had all the basic requirements and then we settled by the pool. The winds brought some dramatic clouds and a couple of 5 minute downpours, but in general caused no interruption to the idleness.

The impending full moon brought exceptional tides (high and low) and the Gorse Fox strolled down to wander among the rock pools at low tide.
The weather was no impediment to those wanting to use the beach, it's just that, frankly, it appears nobody did.
Cousteau-cub and Coventry Hobbit called early evening to say they had only just got in, after 3 dives today. They were staying put as they were exhausted. Understandably.

The Silver Vixen, Urban-cub and the Gorse Fox strolled next door the Miami Resort and grabbed some dinner there, before sitting at the beach bar and watching the surf in the moonlight.
