It is difficult to believe we have had to put the clocks forward when we still have such superb weather.
The sea is still warm enough for swimming. The photo above shows a school of cow bream above a shallow reef taken on Saturday. The water is less than half a metre deep here and you can see the seaweed reflected by the surface.
We think it was half term in Holland as there seemed to be many Dutch children on the beaches. Here is a group playing in the rock pools at El Playazo on Saturday.
The ramblas seem to be full of insect life. Butterflies, moths and wasps are buzzing around perhaps attracted by the atrapa mosca bushes which are in flower. Yesterday in the rambla behind San Pedro we came across several pairs of mating grasshoppers. This pair of Egyptians were at it in the juncus rushes. The female is always larger than the male.
To end with a couple of photos I have already posted elsewhere. Firstly Kirsten from Holland and her little dachshund, Bartje on el Playazo beach last Friday.
La Isleta, boats, gulls and volcanoes.
