It is Carnival Day, and if the weather in Santa Cruz is anything like it is here, it looks as though it is going to be lovely. There are a few, hardly any, high clouds in a sunny sky, and even before 8.00am, temperatures are 18°C. On the downside, there is a coastal warning for waves up to 5 meters in the north of the island, so do take care.
It was almost 11.30 yesterday before the sun finally woke up and then it turned into a glorious day. The temperature rose to almost 26°C during the afternoon.
