    In Majorca this week. Arrived at the hotel about 9pm last wednesday, and leaving for the airport at 9 in the morning.
    So counting the 6 other days i calculate we have had 84 hours of daylight, i estimate no more than 12 hours when the sun has broke through the clouds and its been hot.
    Up to yesterday it was quite windy, surfers an sail boarders out in the sea, calmed down now.
    This morning got 1 hour of hot sun around 10 am, since the cloudy and light rain.
    Locals say its been like this for a while, this time last year it was hot and sunny all the time.
    Sat under the awning of a cafe having a beer and thinking is it sunny anywhere !!!

    We left hull on Sunday night and i assume the sun stayed there.
    We have travelled 500 miles in two days and the van has had such a battering from the rain it is clean. Worst we have ever experienced her in France.

    Sat in the van at Masham with the door closed,heater on and glass of wine in hand. No one else on the site but there a load of gypsies just up the road in a park that has big signs sayin "no overnight camping" . Ha! They are on there way to the horse fair at Appleby, interesting that they have two new motorhomes in their convoy.
