2018.09.09 Pure air from the Arctic

This is what happens when the skies clear above the sea. At once you can see for miles on end. But these clear skies combined with the clouds on the right, announce a change in the weather. No matter how south you go, the Arctic knows where to find you. A cold streak of high-speed … Read more

2018.09.05 A change in the weather?

Although the waves aren’t as high as they were yesterday in Japan during typhoon Jebi, they announce here a change in the weather is coming. In San Carles de Rapita the streets were flooded today.

2018.08.16 Welcoming the rain

Woot, woot! Finally some rain. And now we realized again why gutters are a really great invention. In the Netherlands, you will hardly discover any house without them.

Although we didn’t like that the supposedly drying laundry outside got soaking wet again. Today we walked a part of the Vías Verde. We took up the path about 600 m. from our house … Read more

2018.05.09 Raindrops in the swimming pool

Most of the day was sunny and lovely. When we drove out of Puerto de Mazarrón with our shoppings we saw big waves of sea mist. But still, we hadn’t thought it would rain. Even when we see dark clouds we don’t expect rain. Especially when the weather app predicts sunshine all day. So yes, … Read more
