Apparently the news in the UK has been full of the woe that has hit our little corner of the world. (I can think of no other reason my grandmother would fear I was drowned...) Fear not, faithful readers, we are coping just fine. There have been some transport problems, but our little village has been fine - even the tourists are fine.
To demonstrate, here's a photo of the beach today - as you can see, the sky is blue, the sun is out, and the sea is lovely and clean again. The large boat in the distance is the tourists.
Also, apparently lizards like sunshine after rain - I nearly trod on three as I was going down the stairs to the beach this afternoon. Here's a photo of one little one that stood still for a while.
