    We drove from El Pino to Mar Azul at Balerma campsite today and it was so windy along the A7. Sitting here now inside and the campers a rocking and not in the way I want it to be. Been blowing all day must be the same all along the coastline at least the washing is getting dried. Supposed to drop off tomorrow.

    TBH, it's driving me a bit potty! It's been in for a week (at least) here at Aguilas and from what I can see on http://www.eltiempo.es/ there's no end in sight at the mo'!
    We toyed with moving but its gorgeous here at Quinta Bella and as far as I can see, the wind is the same from Valencia down to Marbella ! I think the only thing that would help is a sheltered, less exposed pitch.
    Don't like walking in it, cycling in it, canoeing in it or snorkelling in it! Temps are averaging 18 to 22 but we really need the windbreak...........and sometimes the Nav as well !
    Shouldn't complain, it's not snowing and we're not flooded.

    But dropped to almost nothing this morning, cloudy but you can see sun behind it.

    Thanks, I didn't know about Quinta Bella, ( http://www.quintabella.com) we've stayed at Bella Vista in the past at Águilas, which has the advantage of being within walking distance of the sea but useful to know about an alternative. :)

    Just love it!

    Nice strength blowing across Table Bay - I can see 30+ kiters and the same number of windsurfers.
    Had my turn this morning when wind was lighter - but being a bit of a novice, I had a long walk back along the beach in 33C. Mrs GW tells me it's 7C back home:-(

    Sitting here by the pool plotting my next Bimble Francais
