Summer seems to come and go. Loads of plans before summer.......''We will do this..........we will do that''. Half way through summer and you have done nothing! We, fortunately, grabbed the bull by the horns and made a 'date' with a good friend to spend a day out on his Dehler yacht ''Mischief''.
Brilliant day - the best this summer. Relaxed, good food, good company, lovely clear and clean sea (as can be seen from above) - and, of course, just being out on the water. The only down side (if you want to call it that) was that there was not a good sailing wind so we had to motor...............but who's complaining?!
The biggest summer feast of the year, Santa Maria, has come and gone. 'Lampuki' (press to see link) season has just started and the first rain is approaching. Italy seems to be covered in storms/thunder storms and it looks like we may be getting the tail end of it. I always say May/June and mid September/October are the best summer months - July and August can disappear as far as I am concerned!
It is almost full moon - will this bring some wind? We hope so.............until then we move around our daily routine in the intense heat and long for the excitement of that first 'change of air'.
