Again it spotted with rain overnight, disturbing our sleep as we (Julie) rushed to close hatches but again, this morning, it was a lovely day and indeed, it stayed that way all day. In fact, it was a classic summer's day, warm, sunny and with a gentle wind. Perfect.

Today we would be dicing with the weather. We wanted to see as much as we could of the island but the trouble was, periods of heavy rain were promised, culminating in a prolonged session later in the day but Wednesday and beyond, things are supposed to improve.
