Not to pre-empt Elbert ....... but wow is it NOT windy today.
The sea is almost glassy. Might be a good day for a snorkel trip!

If it brings rain , let it come. The roads are dusty and there is a salty slime on everything from the winds of late.
The Guides say, 'We're gona get wet anyway" and the rain doesn't stop them from making money but the wind we've had the last few days did.

Agreed...there are more and more soft and dusty spots in the sand that makes riding bikes more difficult. A little rain would be welcome. Just not so much that it fills up the deep potholes again. We'll wait for the wet season for that!
