|Early morning clouds, 1st December|
So we bid goodbye to November - it blew out in a grand finale
of gale force winds overnight, but was not
accompanied by the torrential rain that had been forecast.
It's been a mixed month weatherwise - we've had picnics on
the beach - hubby has even swum in the sea at Ascea on a Sunday
afternoon - & days when we've not been able to open all of the
shutters because we didn't want them to blow off their catches.
|Stormy skies off Punta Licosa|
We've been to Punta Licosa on the wildest of days, just to
stand in awe at the untamed sea as Mother Nature
does her worst & we've walked on
Pozzillo beach in brilliant sunshine with
not a breath of breeze & relatively calm seas.
We had 48 hours of storms last weekend, when the
rains did lots of damage to local properties &
washed away the end of our driveway.
We've also had more rainbows in a month than I
can ever recall in our almost 3 years here.

In all, I think this November has reverted to form in
being the 'wet' month of the year &
hopefully this will mean a less harsh Winter.
But my abiding memory of November 2013
will be of some of the most spectacular sunsets ever....
