Saturday 3rd December 2011
Went for our normal morning walk along the beach and it was wonderful. We actually went in the water for a dip, the sea is surprisingly warm. This is the first time we have been here in December and I honestly thought the weather wouldn't be as pleasant as it is.
The sparrows attempted to build a nest during the night in our over hanging roof, this spurred us on to get the net up. We started this around 0930 and stopped around 1700. We stayed out of the midday sun as much as possible as it was very hot. I put a thermometer on the patio and yes, it does read 26% humidity and 43°C.
The insects that usually feast on us during our stays here have either gone on their own holidays or it's too cold for them, well, not the right season. We are not complaining as the supplies of insect repellent can stay here for our next visit. Not sure, does insect repellent have a use-by date?
