- Unusual

Well, short update. It's been an unusually dry summer so far. Although I haven't checked actual rain fall totals, down here in the south, it's been drier than normal.  Our tank isn't even full yet, and usually by now it's overflowing and then some...  It's also seemed cooler than usual overall - been wearing long pants, etc way more than normal for summertime!!

Today is another beautiful day. Sunny,  some fluffy high clouds, good breeze. Another beautiful day in paradise..

We could use some solid rain though.. Garden is dropping, grass is starting to brown up a bit, etc.  Quite unusual for August.   Makes for wonderful beach days, but gardens going dry, etc makes for sad days too...

Stay safe out there...

Its been very hot today and very muggy, just experiencing a shower of rain and there is a pleasant breeze.

Lots of boats have been coming into the Bay this afternoon just in case Beryl causes a problem. We understand it has swung slightly northward from its original projected
path which is good for us but no so good for those that had all the problems last year. I hope Beryl breaks up and turns into nothing but a little rain which I know some
islands are in dire need of. As I write this I can hear several people knocking in nails, best I go out and do the same.

Take care,

Peace and Love

We are getting a few warnings via the press re Beryl. No-one seems too bothered. However, one can never be complacent I have stocked up with some supplies. Weather today is humid and CLOSE. I guess we will have to wait and see. Let's hope it Peters out.

Despite most apps saying its rainy days, I can tell you we have had hardly any here in Marigot Bay for several weeks, everyday has been overbearingly hot and dry. 
Funny things aren't we, never content, everyone is moaning about the heat, yet when it drops a couple of degrees and we feel cold, ( yes cold!) we moan even more.

Hoping that the hurricane season passes peacefully for us all.

The weather here in St Lucia recently has been a combination of blisteringly hot, still days. However things seem to be changing as we approach June with more rain falling particularly at night, today we woke up to find the wind had pulled down the tarpaulin on our new bar, luckily we have not yet opened but it put us back by a few days.
I am hoping that, despite the forecasts, this season will be calm and quiet.

Take care everyone

- Hail in Martinique

Hello all,
Just a quick note since I haven't seen anyone post about it. 
Hail fell in Martinique today. There was also severed flooding and power outage.

The air (not the sky) appeared hazy and grey from Gros Islet to Soufriere today. Tonight we've had some heavy downpours with some lightning and thunder. A rumble of thunder as I type.

Wishing our French neighbours safety and a quick recovery.

Be safe everyone!
