Facebook has a lot to answer for, got waylaid this morning and as I am so much later posting, the temperature has also moved on and it is now almost 25°C. The sky is blue and it is another lovely day here in south Tenerife.
Mid afternoon yesterday temperatures were soaring at 29°C the only sounds to be heard were the steady buzz of young bees and the birdsong that drifted on the warm summer air.

I can just see La Gomera peeking above the cloud but everything on the horizon is a bit hazy while the sky overhead is cloudless and once again temperatures are high for this time of day – 24°C.
OMG yesterday was a hot one, 31ºC in the shade and the heat no longer gently warming our bodies; now it burns unprotected skin in minutes. So for these heady summer months I will be out at dawn and dusk, the only times to enjoy the rays and not get burnt.
Next week’s forecast looks good. The hot weather is continuing here in the south and temperatures once again are on the rise as we go through the week. Although it looks to be still hot in the north Aemet are showing a fair amount of cloud.
