"The threatened cloud hath passed away, sing la de da, sing la de day!" Awoke this morning after all the recent rain to a perfect, cloudless blue sky and full sun beating down; not a breeze in the air and, as I set off along the beach paseo to complete the weeks's shopping at the local supermarket, the sea as calm as a mill pond. No Mediterranean Gulls on the beach this morning, just a quartet or so of Feral Pigeons plus a handful of local House Sparrows.
