    We've had a couple of big storms in the last couple of days. Saw a gap in the clouds and a bit of sun so I grabbed my camera and my bike and took a few shots. The bad weather has subsided now and we have a forecast for a sunny week ahead with temps between 22 and 25 .

    These guys had to abandon their pitch this afternoon

    The Beach was pretty much empty.

    Jim, Lovely photos. Glad the storm is subsiding. If you are anywhere near Lagos, stay on the aire, walk or cycle into town and eat at the Adega del Marina. It's where the locals eat and is brilliant. We had the swordfish and it was lovely.

    Hope you are all having a good time. :)

    I'm guessing howling onshore winds? Too messy for surfing. Nice pics.

    We've had a couple of cloudy days with the odd shower in Zahora. Stayed in the 20's though .
    Blue skies and sunshine back now and staying for the foreseeable future - great! .
    Beats the weather we left in England!
